Sorgen Doubles with Boat over Boat

Stud Hi-Lo

There were many bets lying in front of Mikhail Semin and John Sorgen when they approached sixth street. Sorgen ended up all in and, while the process brought some confusion, Semin ended all discussions, saying, "It's OK, I call."

Sorgen:    /     
Semin:    /     

While Semin had a strong hand, it was a frustrating showdown for him. Semin's full house was topped by Sorgen's, and the Russian player had only a thin chance to escape the damage. Semin hoped for the remaining five, but he peeled another river card instead, leaving Sorgen with a double.
