Frankland Double Beat

[user76079] • Level 8: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Mathew Frankland's housemates were waiting for his heads-up match to finish so they could give him a ride home but decided to leave as they thought his heads-up battle was going to go on a while too long. They were wrong and he has to get a cab home now as well to add to the cost of losing 3k.

He open shoved his last 18,000 from the the button with {7-}{5-} and Anton Makiievskyi called with {a-Hearts}{2-Spades} from the big blind. The final board ran {6-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. The November Niner takes through 74,300 to round 2.
