Hands #102-104: Maria Lampropulos Hits Two Doubles in Three Hands to Take Big Lead

Chad_Holloway • Level 32: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante
Maria Lampropulos

Hand 102: Maria Lampropulos was on the button with the {a-Hearts}{8-Spades} and just limped. Shawn Buchanan, who looked down at the {4-Spades}{4-Hearts} in the big blind, moved all in and Lampropulos called off for 3.5 million.

It was a flip, and Buchanan was looking to hold to stay alive. That proved easier said than done as the {8-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} flop paired Lampropulos. Neither the {2-Spades} turn nor {a-Spades} river helped Buchanan, and he sent some chips across the table.

With that double, Lampropulos chipped up to 7.05 million while Buchanan dropped to 10.4 million.

Hand 103: Buchanan limped with the {9-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and Lampropulos, who had the {4-Spades}{2-Spades} in the big blind, and she checked to see the {7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{9-Diamonds} flop. Lampropulos checked and Buchanan, who flopped two pair, bet 250,000. Lampropulos folded.

Hand 104: Lampropulos picked up the {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs} on the button and raised to 550,000. Buchanan thee-bet to 1.2 million with the {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. Lampropulos paused for a bit before moving all in for 6.75 million and Buchanan snap-called.

It was another flip, and once again Buchanan was looking to hold to win it all. Unfortunately for him, he couldn't do it as the {j-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} flop paired Lampropulos' ace. The {Q-Clubs} turn left Buchanan looking for a nine on the river, but it wasn't in the cards as the {2-Diamonds} bricked.
