Mateos Doubles Twice

mnuwwarah • Nível 20: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

After dropping a big pot to Christian Harder where Harder fired three streets on a {3-Spades}{q-Clubs}{9-Spades}{6-Spades}{8-Hearts} runout, Damien Steel opened for a raise and called for 100,000 total when Adrian Mateos shoved in the big blind.

Mateos: {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Steel: {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

The board ran out dead for both players and Mateos doubled.

The next hand, Mateos jammed in the small blind for 220,000, and big blind Marcin Kapkowski woke up with {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} and called. Mateos had live cards with {q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and found help when {5-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{9-Spades} flopped to give him a straight draw. No waiting: the {k-Spades} hit the turn to lock in another double for the Spaniard.
