O'Dea Booms a Double

Eoghan O'Dea

Recent World Series of Poker November Niner Eoghan O'Dea three-bet to 3,600 from the big blind after Christopher Brammer raised to 1,000 from the button just as the tournament was going on another 15-minute break. Brammer opted to take a flop in position on O'Dea by flat-calling.

The flop produced the {Q-Spades}{9-Clubs}{2-Spades} and O'Dea was to act first. He put out one blue T5,000 chip and two black T200 chips while announcing "4,200." Brammer took some time to think. After a minute or so in the tank, he slid out a tall stack of chips to put O'Dea all in. O'Dea pushed the rest of his chips across the line to put himself at risk.

O'Dea: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}
Brammer: {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}

O'Dea's top pair was up against the gutshot straight draw and backdoor flush draw for Brammer. O'Dea could also lose if Brammer smacked a king.

Everything worked out for O'Dea as the turn brought the {9-Hearts} to pair the board and river the {7-Hearts}. O'Dea's hand held up and he was able to double. Upon final count, O'Dea was all in on the flop for 25,275. He's now at nearly 60,000.
