Busquet Binks Two Doubles

[user153638] • Level 11: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Not long ago Olivier Busquet was sitting on a short stack, but now he has plenty of chips to work with thanks to two doubles.

In the first, Busquet got his stack of 32,000 or so all in preflop holding the {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} against the {a-}{q-} of David Vamplew. The {3-Spades}{10-Hearts}{a-Hearts} flop gave Vamplew the lead, and the {2-Spades} turn meant Busquet needed a jack and a jack only to stay alive. Wouldn't you know it, the {J-Spades} spiked on the river.

Not long after, Busquet got his stack in on a {7-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} flop against Brian Rast. Busquet held the {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for a flush draw, while Rast had the {7-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} for a pair of sevens. The {J-Diamonds} turn gave Busquet a flush, and after the {4-Hearts} was put out on the river he was pushed the pot.
