Rutter Doubles on the Bubble

[user80015] • Level 16: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante
Stuart Rutter

The action folded to Stuart Rutter on the button and he raised to 10,500. Daniel Alaei called from the big blind and checked the {J-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Spades} flop with Rutter continuing for 12,000. Alaei then pushed in a stack of chips before Rutter moved all in for 73,000 with Alaei instantly making the call.

Although Rutter was the first hand to be paused, his would be the last to be played out.

Rutter: {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}
Alaei: {J-Spades}{9-Clubs}

With Rutter at risk, the turn of the {4-Diamonds} and river of the {7-Diamonds} ensured him the double to 174,000 as Alaei slipped to 145,000 in chips.
