Philipps Doubles

[user38873] • Nível 15: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Benjamin Philipps

In the previous hand, Armin Mette raised to 8,000 and then folded to the three-bet by Yung Hwang for 22,000 from one seat over, Benjamin Philipps forfeited his big blind and was left with 3,000. Table neighbor Tomas Macnamara took out his smartphone and took a picture of Philipps before the next hand started.

Then, action folded all the way around to Philipps in the small blind and he tanked, looked around if any other tables were still going on (there were two). "I haven't tanked in a long time," Philipps said and Dietrich Fast on the rail grinned and said "take your time." Ultimately, Philipps called all in for his last 2,500 and they accidentally exposed their cards while table one was still involved in a hand. As soon as that had finished, the showdown took place.

Benjamin Philipps: {A-Hearts}{4-Clubs}
Tomas Macnamara: {K-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

The board came {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and Philipps doubled up.
