Secondary Table Hands #116-118: Two Double-Ups For Steven

• Level 18: 150,000-300,000, 50,000 ante
Brandon Steven

Hand #116: The very next hand after being crippled by Christoph Vogelsang it was Brandon Steven who moved all in from the button for 420,000. Rick Salomon gave up his small blind and the German pro called.

Steven: {A-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Vogelsang: {4-Hearts}{2-Clubs}

The board ran out {A-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{8-Spades} and Steven kept his hopes alive by, more than, doubling up.

Hand #117: Brandon Steven moved all in from the cutoff for about 950,000 and Rick Salomon called from his immediate left. Both blinds folded and the showdown went as following.

Steven: {Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Salomon: {K-Spades}{J-Spades}

The board ran out {2-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and Steven found himself another double up! Back-to-back double ups have put Steven back in the race, but he still one double up shy of having a comfortable stack to play with.

Hand #118: Christophe Vogelsang raised from the button to 625,000 and Cary Katz tanked for quite a while before three-betting from the big blind to 2,800,000. Vogelsang folded and Katz picked up this pot.

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.
