Sixth Double for Watson

Jaxon • Nível 45: 400,000-800,000, 85,000 ante

Michael Watson opened the button for 1.6 million before he called off his stack of around 9 million after Eelis Parssinen jammed the big blind.

Michael Watson: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Eelis Parssinen: {7-Spades}{7-Spades}

It was looking like showers for Watson after he failed to connect with the {10-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} flop nor with the {6-Clubs} turned.

The {a-Hearts} came raining down on the river to pair up Watson to give him a double up. Watson took the lead after the hand.

Eelis Parssinen limped from the small blind before he called off for about 14 million facing a jam by Watson.

Eelis Parssinen: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Michael Watson: {a-Clubs}{4-Spades}

Watson didn't hit a piece of the {q-Spades}{8-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} board and Parssinen had half the chips in play after the hand.

Kitai Doubles to Even Up the Stacks

Jaxon • Nível 45: 400,000-800,000, 85,000 ante

Michael Watson jammed from the small blind with {j-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and was called by Davidi Kitai for 7.6 million in the big blind with {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}.

Eelis Parssinen opened the button for 1.6 million before he folded to a three-bet by Watson to 4.8 million.

Watson paired up both his cards to improve to two pair on the {j-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{9-Hearts}{a-Spades} board and his good run continues.
