Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Peng Doubles Back

• Taso 25: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Vanessa Peng

In a battle of the blinds, Vanessa Peng raised to 57,000 first into the pot, and Adam Geyer three-bet shoved from the big blind. Peng almost couldn't believe what she heard, double-checking with the dealer before snap-calling with {J-Diamonds} {J-Spades}. Geyer tabled {A-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds} with a bit of a frustrated wince.

The board was clean for Peng, coming {5-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}, and the jacks hold to double her back to average. She had 478,000 to start the hand, so she's got 980,000 now and a new lease on her tournament life. Geyer is still above average, but that one hurt enough to knock him back to 1.35 million.
