Polk Completes Amazing Comeback To Beat Lichtenberger

Douglas Polk

Douglas Polk was down to just 12,300 chips at one point but that didn't keep him from making the round of 16. Andrew Lichtenberger lost a series of all ins ending his tournament with a $966 profit. We caught the final two hands that secured the win for Polk.

On a {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop Lichtenberger check-called a 15,600 bet and the turn was the {4-Spades}. Both players checked and the river was the {J-Diamonds}. Lichtenberger opted to bet 36,000 and after tanking for quite a bit Polk moved all in. Lichtenberger did some thinking on his part before releasing his hand. After this hand Polk was up to 374,000 while Lichtenberger was getting short, he had 104,000 left.

On the final hand the board read {J-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{7-Clubs} and Pol bet 15,600. Lichtenberger called after which the dealer brought out the {K-Spades}. Polk put Lichtenberger all in and he called and mucked after his opponent showed {10-Spades}{7-Spades} for trip sevens. Polk moves on to the next round and will play the winner of the match between Brock Parker and Mark Radoja.
