Event #37: $5,000 Limit Hold'em

Shulman Doubles with a Monster

• Taso 10: 800-1,600, 0 ante

Paul Sokoloff raised under the gun, and a short-stacked Shulman three-bet. Action folded back around to Sokoloff, who asked how much Shulman had behind. Shulman told him he started the hand with 4,200. Sokoloff and Shulman then raised until Shulman was all in, and the players turned up their cards.

Shulman: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}
Sokoloff: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}

Shulman was in dominating position with his aces, and he was in even better shape after the flop came {5-Clubs}{a-Spades}{j-Spades}. The turn sealed Shulman's victory with a {4-Diamonds}, and the {j-Spades} on the river unnecessarily improved Shulman's hand to a full house.

After more than doubling up, Shulman sits with 10,800 in chips.

Jeff Shulman us 10,800 -26,200
