Brian Wilson Doubles Up Into the Chip Lead

Hand 191 - Gale has the button, he raises to $20,000, Wilson reraises to $60,000, Gale reraises to $180,000, Wilson reraises all in, and Gale calls. Wilson shows pocket fours (4d-4s), but Gale has pocket tens (10d-10s). Wilson is dominated here, and will need to catch something to survive. The flop comes Jc-8d-4h, and Wilson flops a set to take a big lead in the hand. Now Gale will need to hit a ten, or a runner-runner straight to eliminate Wilson. The turn card is the 8s, and Gale needs to hit an eight or a ten (4 outs) to eliminate Wilson. The river card is the Ks, and Brian Wilson has doubled up in chips.

Brian Wilson has just taken the chip lead.

Hand 190 - Wilson has the button, he limps, Gale raises to $20,000, Wilson reraises to $60,000, Gale reraises to $160,00, Wilson moves all in, and Gale calls. Wilson shows pocket sixes (6h-6d), while Gale has Ac-Js, and it's a race situation. The flop comes 8d-7c-4s, and Gale needs to catch a jack or an ace to eliminate Wilson. The turn card is the Jh, and Gale takes the lead with a jack of hearts. Wilson needs to catch a five (for a straight) or a six (for a set) to stay alive (6 outs). The river card is the 5s, and Gale spikes a straight on the river to stay alive. John Gale doubles up in chips.
