Roberts Finds Aces and Doubles

[user80015] • Level 26: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Clayton Hamm opened to 110,000 from middle position and Brian Hastings called in the cutoff before Brian Roberts three-bet the button to 340,000. Hamm kicked his cards to the muck, but Hastings called as the flop landed {9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{8-Clubs} and Hastings checked.

Roberts continued with a 455,000-chip bet and Hastings moved all in. Roberts called all in for 1,945,000 and the cards were tabled.

Roberts: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}
Hastings: {10-Spades}{9-Spades}

With Roberts in the lead but needing to fade plenty of cards to stay alive, the {K-Clubs} and {J-Hearts} on the turn and river ensured Roberts the double to 4.8 million as Hastings slips to 1.3 million in chips.
