Jesse Martin made it two bets from the hijack and Raymond Dehkharghani made it three-bets from the small blind. The {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{6-Spades} flop would see Dehkhargahni lead with a bet and Martin Call. The {q-Clubs} turn and Dehkharghani would lead again. Martin announced a raise and Dehkhargahni made the call.

Derke Doubles

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6 • Level 22

Jeff Shulman came in with a raise from the button and Andrew Prock three-bet from the small blind. Nicholas Derke then four-bet from the big blind. Shulman called and so too did Prock.

The {8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} flop would see Prock bet, Derke called all-in and Shulman also called. Derke watched on as the two players took to a {10-Spades} turn. Prock again led and Shulman opted to lay down his hand.

Prock turned over his {k-Spades}{6-Spades} and Derke's {10-}{10-} was looking good to take the double-up. The river bricked out and Derke took down the hand with his set.
