Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Arage Doubles Through Costello

• Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Mark Costello opened for 27,000 from middle position and was met by an all-in three-bet to 318,000 from Michael Arage on the button. The blinds both folded and Costello made the call.

Costello: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Arage: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}

Both players held legitimate pocket pairs, but Arage's was best. The board ran out a clean {4-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Arage doubled through Costello, who was left with a short stack.
