Duhamel Doubles Through Perkins


Bill Perkins just played his third 300k+ pot this level and unfortunately for him, he's only won once.

Action folded to Perkins in the cutoff and he raised to 7,000. Jonathan Duhamel re-raised to 21,000 on the button, getting folds from the blinds. Perkins four-bet to 82,000 and after a few moments, Duhamel five-bet shoved for 190,700.

Perkins called and revealed {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, racing with Duhamel's {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}. The {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{3-Hearts} flop was no help to Duhamel, but the {J-Clubs} turn gave him the lead. The {J-Hearts} river further improved Duhamel's hand, leaving Perkins with less than six figures.
