Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Shorties Doubling Early

• Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

We've heard the "All in and a call," shout a couple dozen times already this afternoon, and there are seats springing open. Still, not all the short stacks are succumbing quite so quickly.

Over on Table 312, a battle of the blinds saw Duane Alexander and John Moore getting it all in before the flop. Moore was the one at risk for 179,000, and he was in good shape with the {K-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} dominating Alexander's {J-Diamonds} {J-Hearts}. The board came {6-Spades} {5-Hearts} {Q-Clubs} {10-Spades} {4-Diamonds}, and Moore doubles up to about 380,000.

Just a moment later, one of our last remaining women put herself at risk. Mimi Luu shoved for 50,000 straight with {J-Clubs} {J-Spades}, and she was able to fade Robert Kolbe's {7-Spades} {8-Spades} to double. The board rolled out {3-Hearts} {A-Spades} {2-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} {10-Hearts}, and the lady is back over 100,000.
