Ethier Scoops One to Double through Friedman

• Nivo 24


After Denis Ethier made it 40,000 to go before the flop, Adam Friedman three-bet to 60,000 and Ethier came along. The flop fell {A-Spades}{3-Hearts}{7-Spades} and Ethier checked it, prompting a bet of 20,000 by Friedman. Ethier check-raised to 40,000 and Friedman decided to peel one off, making the call.

The turn card brought the {3-Clubs} and Ethier pushed all-in for his last 39,000 chips. Friedman made the call to put Ethier at risk and we were off to the river, which came {3-Diamonds}.

Friedman tabled the {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for a full house, threes full of aces, but Ethier bested him with his {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{Q-Spades} for a better boat, aces full of threes. No low hand was possible and Ethier survived this all-in confrontation by scooping the pot. He now sits with 310,000 chips while Friedman dropped below the million mark to 910,000.
