Petersen Doubles Through Barkow

poolshir • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Elbert Petersen raised to 4,200 from early position and action folded to Kevin Barkow in the big blind who considered his options for a while before three-betting to 15,000. Now it was Petersen's turn to contemplate for a while. In the end, Petersen shoved and Barkow called.

Elbert Petersen: {A-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Kevin Barkow: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

The board ran out {k-Spades}{a-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} for Petersen to hit the ace on the flop to double up.

Barkow was clearly not happy, voicing his thoughts about Petersen's call out loud.
