Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Two Pair Equals Double the Chips for Childs

Shamus • Nivo 15: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Lee Childs opened with a raise to 8,500 from the cutoff seat, and it folded to Fabian Reyes in the big blind who reraised to 19,000. Childs had about 75,000 behind, and thought about a half-minute before calling the reraise.

The flop came {J-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{K-Hearts}. Reyes waited about ten seconds, then bet 27,000. Childs leaned over to see what Reyes had bet, then announced he was all in. A count showed his raise was to 64,000 total, and Reyes made the call.

Reyes had {Q-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} for jacks, but the flop had hit Childs twice as he had {K-Clubs}{J-Spades}. The turn was the {7-Clubs} and river the {A-Spades}, and the 2007 WSOP Main Event seventh-place finisher doubled to nearly 170,000. Meanwhile, Reyes still has 570,000.
