Pobal Also Gets a Double

Mikalai Pobal

Joni Jouhkimainen seems to be bleeding his chips, giving away double ups to both of his opponents. At first it was Shamies who doubled through his fellow countryman and just now Mikalai Pobal did the same.

Pobal opened the action with a raise to 350,000 and Jouhkimainen shoved all in. Pobal gave it a thought and decided to make the call putting his tournament life at risk.

Jouhkimainen showed {A-Clubs} {9-Spades} and Pobal flipped {A-Spades} {10-Clubs}. The Belorussian was still in the lead after the {10-Spades} {8-Hearts} {9-Clubs} flop, while Jouhkimainen was in need on another nine. The {A-Diamonds} on the turn paired both aces, but favored Pobal more and the {6-Clubs} on the river gave him a double up.
