Chanthabouasy Doubles and Cripples Farrell

• Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Niall Farrell opened to 16,000 from middle position and Steve Chanthabouasy three-bet to 35,000 from the button. Action folded back to Farrell who made the call. The flop was {j-Spades}{9-Spades}{6-Spades} and Farrell checked.

Chanthabouasy bet 35,000 and Farrell raised all in. Chanthabouasy snap-called and turned over {9-}{9-} for a set of nines. Farrell flipped over {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds} and was drawing to the flush. No spade on the {3-Hearts} or the {q-Clubs} river though and Chanthabouasy takes a big one, leaving Farrell with just a few big blinds.
