Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Adelstein Coolers Lodden For Chip Lead

tayke2 • Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Flopping a set is usually a poker player's dream, but in some rare instances, flopping a set can get you into a world of trouble. Unfortunately for Team Pokerstars Pro Johnny Lodden, he just fell victim to the dreaded set over set mega-cooler, and as a result, Garrett Adelstein is you new chip leader.

When we came to the table, Lodden and Adelstein were already in the middle of a raising war on a flop of {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}. Adelstein had a bet of 38,000 out there, but Lodden had put out a raise of 65,000 total. Action was on Adelstein, who counted out a reraise to 98,200, representing most of his stack. Lodden tanked for about 30 seconds, and though it seemed like he knew the cooler spot that he was in, he went all in. Adelstein instantly called, and Lodden's fears became true.

Adelstein: {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Lodden: {7-Clubs}{7-Spades}

Lodden would need to catch the case seven to win the monster pot, but he couldn't do it on the turn, {10-Diamonds}, or the river, {j-Clubs}. Adelstein counted out his chips and it ended up being 140,100 total. Despite the hit, Lodden still has a healthy 80,000, which is just below the average stack in the room.
