Hands #48-51: Drake Doubles with Kings

[user80015] • Level 38: 300,000-600,000, 100,000 ante
Sean Drake

Hand #48: Thayer Rasmussen raised to 1.2 million from under the gun and Claas Segebrecht called from the big blind to see a {7-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} flop fall. Both players checked as the {Q-Diamonds} landed on the turn and Segebrecht checked to Rasmussen who bet out 1.35 million with Segebrecht calling.

The river landed the {5-Spades} and Segebrecht checked for a third time with Rasmussen checking behind. Segebrecht tabled his {K-Diamonds}{10-Spades} for second pair and scooped the pot once Rasmussen mucked.

Hand #49: Sean Drake opened to 1.3 million first to act and collected the blinds and antes.

Hand #50: Claas Segebrecht opened to 1.2 million from the button and Sean Drake defended his big blind to see a {5-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds} flop fall with Segebrecht betting out 1.55 million with Drake check-calling.

The turn landed the {9-Hearts} and both players checked as the {6-Hearts} completed the board on the river. Drake checked and Segebrecht bet out 1.7 million. Drake called, and then mucked once Segebrecht tabled his {A-Spades}{2-Hearts} for top pair.

Segebrecht climbs to roughly 32 million as Drake slips to 14.1 million.

Hand #51: From the small blind, Sean Drake limped in and Hugo Pingray checked his option to see a {3-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop fall. Drake pushed out a bet of 800,000 and Pingray raised to 2.1 million only to have Drake three-bet to 6.1 million.

Pingray eyed what Drake had remaining in his stack before switching his gaze back towards the flop. After a few moments, Pingray announced he was all in and Drake called for his 13.45 million total.

Pingray: {5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Drake: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

With Drake ahead with his overpair, he would be up against Pingray's straight draw until the {8-Diamonds} on the turn increased the outs Drake needed to fade to an additional six. Fortunately for Drake, the river landed the {10-Hearts} to ensure his double to over 28 million as Pingray slipped to 26 million in chips.
