Melogno Doubles Through Luca


Ivan Luca raised to 52,000 from early position and it folded around to Pablo Joaquin Melogno who called from the big blind. The flop fell {10-Spades}{9-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and Melogno check-called a bet of 59,000 from Luca.

The turn paired the board, bringing the {10-Clubs}. Melogno opted to bet out this time, pushing 61,000 into the middle. Luca raised to 125,000, only to find a three-bet ship from Melogno for 591,000. Luca called and the hands were turned up:

Luca: {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}
Melogno: {Q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

Melogno was ahead with trip tens, but Luca had outs going to the river. Luca was looking for a jack or a club, but found neither when the {Q-Diamonds} came, filling up Melogno.
