Hands 112-116: Cada Bing

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Joe Cada Has Doubled Up to Move Closer to His Second WSOP Bracelet

Hand #112: Carlton won the blinds and antes with raise to 150,000 from the small blind.

Hand #113: Carlton raised from the button, but folded when Joe Cada reraised all-in for is last 840,000 or so chips.

Hand #114: Polychronopoulos opened to 125,000 from under the gun, Taylor reraised all-in for approximately 1.2 million big blind, and that was enough to force a fold.

Hand #115: Cada opened to 120,000 in the cutoff, stealing the blinds and antes.

Hand #116: Cada opened to 120,000 from under the gun, Taylor shoved all-in for 1.4 million, and Cada made the quick call for his last 1.165 million.

Showdown:

Cada: {A-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Taylor: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

The two were racing in this huge spot, but when the flop fell {6-Spades}{j-Spades}{a-Spades}, Cada got a big head start. A {Q-Hearts} on the turn improved Cada's hand, but actually gave Taylor four more outs to the Broadway straight. The {6-Diamonds} on the river was a brick though, and Taylor shipped most of his chips across the table.
