De Meulder Finds Unlikey Way to Double

Matthias De Meulder is a happy bunny after he was so sure he was out of the door.

The action folded around to Alexander Uskov in the small who completed. The Team PokerStars Pro checked his big blind option so the two could see a {q-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Spades} flop.

De Meulder bet 600 when Uskov checked to him but the Russian went for the old check-raise all-in. The Belgian was covered and had a decision to make for his 10,775 five stack. After a while thinking he called with {q-Diamonds}{5-Spades} for top pair and low flush draw.

Uskov had him crushed with {10-Spades}{3-Spades} for a made flush but lost out when the board ran out {5-Hearts}{5-Spades} to make a running full house for De Meulder.
