Jordan Morgan doubles up

Hand #197: Evan McNiff raised to 160,000 and Jordan Morgan made the call to see a flop of {4-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. Morgan checked and McNiff bet out 170,000. Morgan raised to 425,000 in response, which scared McNiff out of the pot.

Hand #198: Morgan raised to 160,000 and McNiff called. The flop was {q-Hearts}{5-Spades}{a-Spades} and McNiff checked. Morgan bet out 150,000. McNiff called and the turn card was the {7-Clubs}. Both players checked and the river came down the {4-Hearts}. McNiff bet out 355,000 and Morgan folded his hand after a minute of thought.

Hand #199: McNiff raised to 160,000 and Morgan three-bet to 405,000. McNiff pushed all in and Morgan quickly called to put himself at risk.

Morgan: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}
McNiff: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

McNiff's rail cheered for the anticipated win and it was looking good through to the turn of {10-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{8-Clubs}. Everything changed when Morgan spiked an ace on the river. The dealer flipped over {a-Clubs} and McNiff's rail erupted with groans and shouts of "you've got to be kidding" and "so sick!"

Morgan scored the huge double up to regain the chip lead.

Hand #200: Morgan raised to 160,000 and won the pot.

Hand #201: McNiff raised to 160,000 and Morgan made the call. The flop came {k-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Spades} and Morgan quickly checked. McNiff bet out 170,000 and won the hand.
