Hennigan Doubles Before Break

[user101598] • Level 15

Pot-Limit Omaha

Before the break, John Hennigan raised to 12,000 from under the gun, Robert Mizrachi called on his direct left, James Obst called in the hijack seat, Jason Mercier called on the button, and Frank Kassela called out of the small blind.

"Do I even have to look?" David Steicke said in the big blind.

He did look, then begrudgingly folded.

The flop fell {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{3-Spades}, Kassela checked, Hennigan bet the pot (66,000), and the action folded to Mercier. He rereaised, Kassela folded, and Hennigan called all in.

Hennigan: {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Mercier: {q-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

Mercier flopped the wheel, but Hennigan was drawing to a spade flush. He hit it on the turn ({3-Spades}), and the {j-Hearts} bricked off on the river. Johnny "World" doubled to 330,000 chips, while Mercier dropped to 806,000.
