Yev Finds His Double


Under the gun, Sam Stein made it 13,000 to go, and he found calls from both Yevgeniy Timoshenko (button) and Jonathan Duhamel (small blind) to go three ways to the flop.

It came {9-Spades} {8-Hearts} {K-Spades}, and the action checked to Timoshenko. He settled on a bet of 19,000, folding Duhamel without incident. Stein check-raised, though, and the resulting action left Timoshenko all in for 148,000 total.

Stein: {K-Clubs} {8-Clubs}
Timoshenko: {9-Hearts} {9-Clubs}

It was a cooler of a flop, and Timoshenko needed to fade just two outs to double. The turn {J-Spades} and river {5-Clubs} were blanks, and Stein has been forced to pay off a double. He'd been doing some good work early on to chip up above his start-of-day stack, but that run-in with Yev has knocked him right back down there again.
