Skrzypczak More Than Doubles

poolshir • Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante
Pawel Skrzypczak

Rakesh Lalwani shoved from under the gun for his last 79,000 and was called by Jan Bendik on his direct left. Pawel Skrzypczak looked at his cards from the hijack and decided to also shove but for 322,000 in total. Action folded back to Bendik who considered his options for a bit and then decided to make the call.

When Bendik flipped over his cards, the rest of the table gasped and looked bewildered at the cards and each other.

Rakesh Lalwani: {2-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Pawel Skrzypczak: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}
Jan Bendik: {k-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}

The board ran out {q-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{9-Clubs}, even though Bendik hit a king on the flop, he couldn't find any others to improve his hand and Skrzypczak scored the elimination to his name and doubled through Bendik.
