Alekberovas Doubles Through Pobal


Mikalai Pobal raised to 275,000 from the button with {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds} only to have Anaras Alekberovas three-bet all in for 1.285 million from the small blind. Pobal made the call and it was off to the races.

The {10-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} flop was no help to the Lithuanian, though it did give hime a gut-shot straight draw. The {8-Hearts} turn was of no consequence, but Alekberovas pulled a page from Barry Greenstein's book, Ace on the River, and hit the {A-Spades} on the river for the double.
