McGowan Rivers Ace to Double Through Uselis

AnthonyThompson • Level 29: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante
David McGowan

Action folded to Gediminas Uselis who raised all in from the small blind and David McGowan called off his 1,130,000 stack from the big blind.

David McGowan: {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Gediminas Uselis: {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}

McGowan was racing for his tournament life and the {10-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{k-Clubs} flop gave him some more outs as it gave him a Broadway draw.

The turn came the {8-Hearts}, leaving McGowan needing any ace, queen or jack to stay alive and luckily for him, the dealer answered his prayer by dropping the {a-Spades} on the river, securing his double-up.
