Thompson Goes Runner Runner to Double Through Alcorn

WSOPC Ring Event #5: $300 Ladies Event
Level 12: Blinds 1,000-2,000 BBA 2,000
10 / 43 Remaining

Heather Alcorn raised from under the gun to get called by Rebecca Thompson and Veronique Croes in the big blind. The AcKd5h flop was checked by Croes and Alcorn. Thompson then moved all-in for Croes to fold and Alcorn instantly announced “I call.”

Rebecca Thompson: Ad9d
Heather Alcorn: AhKs

Thompson was in dire shape but as soon as the 8d fell on the turn, Alcorn gasped an “oh my god,” seemingly knowing the cruel fate with one more card to come. Sure enough, the 7d river completed the runner-runner miracle for Thompson and she doubled for 33,100.

Rebecca Thompson – 86,000
Veronique Croes – 54,000
Heather Alcorn – 35,000
