Moorman Runs Into Alvarado's Queens in Million-Chip Pot

Chad_Holloway

Chris Moorman raised to 22,000 under the gun only to have Simon Ravnsbaek three-bet to 52,000 from the hijack. JC Alvarado was next to act in the cutoff and four-bet to 115,000, putting action back on Moorman after the button and both blinds got out of the way.

The Brit thought for a bit before sliding out his entire stack of 528,000 with two hands. Ravnsbaek quickly folded, and Alvarado snap-called.

Showdown

Moorman{7-Spades}{5-Clubs}
Alvarado{Q-}{Q-}

Moorman had picked the wrong time as Alvarado help a big pair, but the {3-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop did make things interesting as it delivered the former a pair and gut-shot straight draw. The {6-Diamonds} turn meant Moorman needed either a seven or four on the river to stay alive, but it was was not to be as the {Q-Diamonds} river gave Alvarado a full house and the pot of over 1 million.
