Roberts Cracks Rockets to Double
Level 13: 2,000/4,000 (4,000)
Scott Roberts was once again low on chips when he jammed the button for 11 big blinds. Federico Burgos Puentes came in over the top from the small blind and the player in the big blind got out of the way.
Scott Roberts: K♣4♣
Federico Burgos Puentes: A♥A♦
It was looking like showers for Roberts but he stayed in his seat anyway as anything can (and did) happen.
The table got excited after Roberts gained some hope with an open-ended straight draw after the 2♠3♥5♦ flop. The tables turned on the 6♥ turn with Roberts now holding the nuts with a straight and Puentes drawing to three outs for a chop. The J♠ river completed the board and Roberts doubled his stack near the end of the day by cracking his opponent’s rockets.
Scott Roberts – 95,000
Federico Burgos Puentes – 50,000
