Event #9: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Another Shorty Doubles, Medes Left Short

[user249920] • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Action folded to Cornel Medes, who shipped from the cutoff. John Fontana called off his 124,000 in the small blind.

Fontana: {a-Spades}{9-Hearts}
Medes: {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}

"Son of a biscuit," Fontana muttered, keeping things PG.

The {5-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop brought hope for a chop, but it was the {9-Spades} turn that gave Fontana a big lead. Another of his outs, the {9-Clubs}, hit the river, and Fontana doubled while Medes slipped to short-stacked status again.
