Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Vandersmissen Doubles an Opponent, Then Doubles Himself

After a series of bets and raises, it appeared as if Anton Morgenstern was all in and at risk preflop against Kevin Vandersmissen. After all, both players had their cards exposed, Morgenstern with {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts} and Vandersmissen with {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}, but the dealer was unsure if action was completed.

Finally, a tournament director was beckoned, and he ruled that the players were all in due to assumed action.

The board rolled out {9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{6-Diamonds}, and Morgenstern doubled. Vandersmissen was left with just 19,000 or so.

A few hands later, the Belgian was all in and at risk with {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs} against an opponent's {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}. This time his pair held up against the overcards as the flop, turn, and river produced {4-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{q-Hearts}{3-Spades}{3-Clubs}, and Vandersmissen doubled to 40,000 chips.

Chips Count
Anton Morgenstern de 130,000 53,250
Kevin Vandersmissen be 40,000 -28,000
