Cantu Scores Huge Double

Brandon Cantu

2,000/4,000, 500

Martin Jacobson had the button. He raised to an unknown amount. Brandon Cantu three-bet to 26,000 only to have Jacobson come back over the top with a four-bet to 52,000. Cantu stood up from the table, counted his chips, and then announced that he was all in. Jacobson called and the hands were revealed to be racing:

Cantu: {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades}
Jacobson: {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}

The board fell {9-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{8-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{9-Spades} and Cantu's pocket jacks were able to hold. The match is now close to where it started in terms of chip distribution between the players.
