Secondary Table Hands #112-115: Vogelsang Doubles, Cripples Steven

• Level 18: 150,000-300,000, 50,000 ante
Christoph Vogelsang Doubles

Hand #112: Rick Salomon received a walk in the big blind.

Hand #113: Christoph Vogelsang made it 600,000 from the button and Cary Katz called from the big blind. The flop came down {7-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} and both players checked to see the {6-Diamonds} fall on the turn. Two more checks allowed the board to complete with the {2-Clubs} and Katz checked for a third time. Vogelsang fired 400,000 and Katz let it go.

Hand #114: Brandon Steven received a walk in the big blind.

Hand #115: Vogelsang was under the gun and raised to 625,000. Action folded to Steven in the small blind and he three-bet shipped all in. Action came back to Vogelsang and he called for his own tournament life of 7.155 million.

Vogelsang: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Steven: {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}

The flop came down {2-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}, keeping Vogelsang's pocket nines in the lead. Steven cried for an ace or a king on the turn, but it was instead the {Q-Clubs}.

"We have one more pull at it," said Steven. "Come on! Ace or king!"

The {Q-Diamonds} ultimately hit the river, allowing Vogelsang to score a huge double up to around 14.9 million. Steven, on the other hand, has been crippled to just 490,000.
