Jason Hickey

Jason Hickey opened to 5,500 from early position and picked up three callers before Serhii Popovych moved all in from the big blind. Hickey checked his stack, called at risk for 93,500 and the rest of the table folded.

Hickey: AsKc
Popovych: Ad4h

Hickey was in great shape for a double but found a sweat on the 7d5d2s flop.  Popovych was still behind but picked up a gutshot wheel draw that turned open-ended with 6s turn. Hickey asked for something big, got something small, but the 2c river was safe for his double up.

Jason Hickey – 201,000 (80 bb)
Serhii Popovych – 42,500 (17 bb)
