Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Corkins Doubles Through Charania

Hoyt Corkins is playing the short to mid-stack extremely well today. He has never really had a stack to play poker with, but as we head towards the final level of the night he is still here with 22 players remaining.

The action folded around to Mohsin Charania on the button and he made it 20,000 to play. Corkins called in the small blind and the pair shared a flop of {J-Hearts} {9-Hearts} {3-Diamonds}. Corkins liked it and came out betting for 25,000. Charania also liked it because he raised pot. It was sufficient an amount to put Corkins all-in and he made the call.

Charania{A-Hearts} {9-Diamonds}

A nicely disguised overpair for Corkins. The turn card was the {5-Clubs} and river {2-Clubs} and Corkins doubled up to 250,000 chips. Mohsin was reduced to a mere 30,000.
