Wakeman Doubles Through Murray

• Nível 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

On a flop of {5-Spades}{7-Spades}{9-Spades} Niall Murray checked from under the gun. Matthew Wakeman was his opponent in the hand, and he bet out 8,500 from the cutoff. Murray called.

The turn brought the {2-Diamonds} and Murray checked once again. Wakeman reached for his chips and splashed out a bet totalling 26,000. Murray then moved all in which had Wakeman covered. Wakeman snap called with 92,000 remaining.

Wakeman: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Murray: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

Wakeman had flopped a flush and had Murray drawing dead on the turn. The meaningless {j-Hearts} completed the board and Wakeman scooped in the large pot.

It's not all bad news for Murray who still has 235,000 following the hand. Murray shipped Event #5 $1,050 NLHE Mix-Max a week ago for AUD$61,300 and will be looking to parlay that into another big result here this week.
