Silver slivers away as Burland doubles through Vamplew

Silver slivers away as Burland doubles through Vamplew

Tuesday, 5 October 2010

Running between my laptop and the TV feature table must be working off that Krispy Kreme doughnut I got from Tesco earlier (it was my first one ever; they're overrated in my view).

Max Silver was eliminated when his A-4 couldn't outdraw Joeri Zandvliet's 8-8 on a seven-high board. Despite making a pair, it wasn't the pair he needed. Just as I was about to rush back and report that hand, this happened:

Black Belt's Jamie Burland opened 3-3 under the gun and EPT London champion David Vamplew re-raised him. Burland shoved, Vamplew called with K-Q and a coinflip it was.

The Q-J-7-Q board seemed to have the decision pretty much made but astute observers noticed the three hearts on the flop and the three OF hearts in Burland's hand - sure enough, a heart on the river doubled him up.
