Fleyshman Finds His Double

Noah Schwartz had whittled Dan Fleyshman down to 148,000 when he open-shoved the button. Fleyshman has been very patient despite his short stack, and he looked down at {A-Clubs} {3-Hearts} and made the call for his tournament life. It was a flip; Schwartz tabled two red deuces {2-Hearts} {2-Diamonds}, and the race was on.

The flop came {10-Hearts} {4-Diamonds} {5-Hearts}, and from the rail, Will Failla piped up, "No deuce now." The turn was the {7-Spades}, and Fleyshman ran through his outs aloud. He found one of them on the river as the {6-Diamonds} improved him to the winner.

"Jesus Christ!" Failla blurted out, probably louder than he intended. "He made a straight."

Fleyshman smirked and looked around for the source of the noise. "Thanks a lot, Will," he said sarcastically. He's got some fighting chips now, doubling up to 300,000 as near as makes any difference.

Chips Count
Noah Schwartz us 391,000 -153,000
Dan Fleyshman us 298,000 153,000
