Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

West Fades Draw, Doubles

Tim West

Tim West came in for a raise in the cutoff to 1,500, and Francesco Nguyen made it 3,800 in the small blind. The big blind folded, and West made the call. The flop came out {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}, and Nguyen bet out 5,000. West thought for about 15 seconds before announcing all in. Nguyen asked for an exact count, and when he got it, he slid a stack of orange T5000 chips, making the call.

West: {5-Hearts}{5-Spades}
Nguyen, {a-Hearts}{7-Spades}

"Well that's not the hand I wanted you to have!" joked West who was clearly hoping for an overpair. West would need to dodge a nine or a four, and he survived the turn, the {q-Clubs}. The river brought the {8-Diamonds}, filling West up, and he scored to double up to get himself back up close to 50,000.
