$300 + 50 NL (Big Stack)
Mike Ackrish (Staten Island, NJ) limped in with aces and got two callers.
Flop: 4♥ 6♠ 9♥
Johnny "Stroker" jams the flop and Mike snap calls, easily covering Johnny.
The third player folds, claiming to have 10-10.
Stroker tables J-9 and Ackrish flips over Aces.
Stroker needs a nine or a jack or his tournament dreams are over. Just like that the J♣ falls and he more than doubles up to 100,000.
Mike Ackrish, a poker veteran knows aces getting cracked is all part of the game.
In this case Stroker beat both big pairs pre-flop catching lucky on the river.
