SandraBarbour • Level 33: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante
Adrian Scarpa

Adrian Scarpa raised to 34,000 from early position. Kenna James called from mid-position along with Brett Apter on the button, and Marko Maher in the big blind.

A flop of {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}{9-Hearts} was dealt. Action checked to Apter who bet 45,000. Maher and Scarpa check-called but James folded.

The turn brought the {5-Spades} and this time, Maher led out with a bet of 140,000. Scarpa responded by moving all in for 491,000. Apter folded, but Maher went into the tank for a long while, and eventually opted to call.

Adrian Scarpa: {k-Spades}{10-Spades}
Marko Maher: {9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}

Maher had turned two pair and Scarpa had a pair and a flush draw. The {2-Spades} river completed the board and Scarpa got his flush to double up.
