Hand #84: John Juanda Doubles Thru Tom Marchese
Level 20: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante
Tom Marchese raises from the button to 175,000, and John Juanda calls from the big blind. The flop comes AKQ, Juanda checks, Marchese bets 225,000, and Juanda check-raises to 710,000.
Marchese thinks for a bit before he moves all in, and Juanda quickly calls all in for 2,375,000 with 96 (heart flush). Marchese turns over J10, and he's drawing dead to a royal flush on the board.
That's pretty unlikely. Even though three-fifths of it is already out there, it's nearly 1,000-to-1 shot to get there.
The turn is the 9, the river is the 6, and John Juanda wins the pot with a heart flush to double up in chips.
