Targa's Aces Go Under


Mihails Morozovs limped in under the gun, and a second player three-bet to 1,125. Coming in from the cold, Petr Targa made another raise to 3,125, and Morozovs responded by shoving all in for 6,625. That folded the monkey in the middle, but Targa quickly called with his covering stack and a chance at the knockout.

Morozovs: {J-Diamonds} {J-Spades}
Targa: {A-Diamonds} {A-Hearts}

It was a bad spot for the all-in player, but things would improve quickly as the flop came {2-Clubs} {K-Hearts} {J-Hearts} .The {Q-Hearts} turn was a huge sweat for him, though, and Targa could catch any ace, ten, or heart to knock him out.

River: {J-Clubs}

Well, quads will do nicely, and Morozovs has found his unlikely double.
