Blain Flips for his Life

• Nível 12: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Full Tilt Ambassador Dermot Blain opened for 3,300 from the Hi-Jack and action was on small blind Ryan Spittles. The big blind seat was empty as the player had stormed off on a huff the previous hand when he faced a three bet and folded his {a-}{j-} face up. Was Blain taking advantage of this and opening light? Spittles bet enough to put him all in to put him to the test. Balin made the call so he wasn’t bluffing, but he was racing, with {8-Clubs}{8-Spades} against the {a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} of Spittles. The board ran out {5-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{6-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and Blain doubled up.
