Event 56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Failla Doubles a Shorty

Will "The Thrill" Failla opened to 2,500 from under the gun and action folded around to his opponent on the button, who min-raised to 5,000 with just a few thousand behind. Action folded back around to Failla, who said, "You're just going to move all in on the flop," and made the call.

The flop came {J-Spades}{5-Clubs}{Q-Spades} and Failla checked. Indeed, his opponent moved all in for his remaining stack and Failla called.

Failla: {A-}{K-}
Opponent: {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}

"I knew you had me crushed, but I just had to go with the hand...[to] try and suck out."

The {2-Diamonds} turn and {4-Clubs} river kept Failla's opponent in the lead and he doubled through.

Failla has had a rough start to the day, but still has plenty of chips to work with (55,000).
