Li Doubles Through Speidel

Bjorn Li doubles through Oliver Speidel

A raised pot saw Oliver Speidel and Bjorn Li take to a {9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} flop. Speidel was first to act and decided to check. Li then bet 70,000 and Speidel thought for almost a minute before announcing an all in. Li snap-called and the two turned their hands over.

Speidel: {8-Spades}{7-Spades}
Li: {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

Li was in front but needed to fade Speidel's opened-ended straight draw. The {3-Spades} on the turn changed nothing and the {6-Hearts} river was safe for Li as he took down the double and put a dent in Speidel's stack.
