The Aart of the Double Up

“I’m not drunk, I’m just all in,” bellowed Johan Palokangas across the room. This was only half a lie – Jerden Aarts was already all in, and Palokangas had moved in too, a suspicious whiff of rum about him. After a moment waiting for Georgios Drakakis to make a decision (he folded), Palokangas and Aarts went to showdown.

Palokangas: 7h 7d
Aarts: Qh Jh

Board: Js Qs 4d 6h As

Aarts thus doubled to 50k – still somewhat precarious with the blinds at 1.5k/3k/400 and the average stack over 130k, but infinitely better than nothing. Palokangas, who would have had an average stack had he won the hand, dropped down to 80k.
