Lester Steamrolling Table


We caught up with the action to see Jason Lester and another player calling the preflop all in of the player in the small blind. The flop came down {Q-Clubs}{7-Spades}{Q-Spades} and Lester checked for the sidepot. His opponent checked back and the turn brought {4-Clubs}. The action went check-check once again.

The river put two pair on the board, bringing the {4-Hearts}.

"Four thousand," announced Lester, tossing in one orange, 5,000 denomination chip. His opponent played with his chips for a bit, tossing around the notion of calling before mucking his hand.

Lester flipped over {K-Hearts}{K-Spades} which was way ahead of his all in opponent, who held {2-Clubs}{2-Spades} and thus played the board.

"Getting some big hands today, Jason", chimed in Mike Matusow from across the table.

"I know," replied Lester. "I've gotten more hands today than I usually get in an entire tournament". Getting hands or not, Jason Lester is now sitting above double starting stack, holding around 68,000 in chips.

Player Chips Progress
