Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Fair Finds a Big Double

[user101598] • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Ryan Fair raised to 50,000 on the button, and Matthew Haugen moved all in for effectively 661,000 out of the big blind. Fair snap-called.

Fair: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
Haugen: {q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

There was a brief pause so that the ESPN cameras could get into position before the dealer fanned an all-heart flop: {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. The {8-Clubs} on the turn pair the board and Haugen reached into his stack for green T25,000 chips, preparing to pay off Fair.

He cut out the stacks after the {7-Hearts} completed the board, and the dealer confirmed Fair's count.

"I almost paid you a hundred dollars to stop getting chips on the turn," Fair told Haugen, smiling.
