Doubling up at this stage with the money spots just starting to come into view is welcome timing and John Scanlon just managed this, raising pocket kings up, only to face a three-bet from an opponent with AQ suited.
He duly stuck the rest of his circa six figure stack in and when his opponent called and bricked the 2d 8d 4d 4h 5h board, Scanlon was in great shape with an above average stack. It’s possible Scanlon earned this double up, having banked quite a few karma points earlier in the day. His neighbour failed to turn up from the post level break, and Scanlon was kind enough to get in touch to remind him it wasn’t the extended dinner break. Good deed done, the poker gods duly smiled upon him. Coincidence? Well….probably yes, but good on you anyway John!
