Lakatos Left Short; Doubles Back Through Fuchs

zedmaster84 • Level 29: 25,000-50,000, 6,000 ante

Florian Fuchs limped the button and called a raise to 200,000 by Ben Lakatos in the small blind. Lakatos led the {q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop for 162,360 to earn a call and then bet the pot for 816,720 on the {8-Clubs} turn. Fuchs called all-in for 625,196 to create the following showdown.

Florian Fuchs: {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Ben Lakatos: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}

The {j-Clubs} river was a blank and Fuchs doubled with queens and eights.

One hand later, Fuchs raised and called the shove of Lakatos.

Ben Lakatos: {k-Spades}{q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
Florian Fuchs: {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}

Fuchs nailed the {5-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Spades} flop but Lakatos had the checkmark on the {j-Spades} turn to make the {9-Spades} river a formality.

Lakatos Catches Tamasauskas Bluffing

zedmaster84

Blinds 20,000/40,000

Ben Lakatos limped in once more and Vincas Tamasauskas checked his option from the big blind. The {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop was checked and Tamasauskas bet the pot for 135,000 on the {k-Spades} turn, picking up a call from Lakatos.

Tamasauskas also potted the {q-Hearts} river and Lakatos called for half of his remaining stack with {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for a set of queens. That was good enough to win the pot, as Tamasauskas only had {j-Spades}{10-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} for a busted straight draw.

Quadrupled-Up for Wang

zedmaster84

Blinds 20,000/40,000

Vincas Tamasauskas won four pots in a row to establish his comfortable lead once more and up next, Ben Wilinofsky raised to 100,000 from under the gun. David Wang jammed for just 120,216 and was called by Tamasauskas, Hernando Guzman and Wilinofsky. The remaining three active players checked down the {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{q-Spades} board and Wang was the only one with hearts in the hand.

He quadrupled with the {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{k-Hearts}{9-Hearts} to get back into contention.
