Grant Lang Doubles Thru Michael Amato

Nov 5, 2014

With more than 50,000 in the pot preflop, Michael Amato (UTG+1) and Grant Lang (button) see a flop of [Qc10d2d]. Amato bets 13,200, and Lang moves all in for 36,900. Amato pauses briefly before he calls, barely covering Lang’s stack.

Allen Kessler points at Lang and says, "You have ace-king." Lang shows [7d6d] for a diamond flush draw. Kessler quickly recovers, points at Amato and says, "No, you have ace-king." Amato turns over [AhKh] for ace high, which at the moment is in the lead. Lang needs to improve to stay alive.

The turn is the [5c], the river is the [9d], and Lang rivers a diamond flush to win the pot and double up in chips, crippling Amato in the process.

Grant Lang  –  136,000  (170 bb)
Michael Amato  –  3,000  (3 bb)
