Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em


Andrew Lichtenberger

Once more, we're short on the betting action, but we'll tell you what we know. When we walked up to the near Table 1, there was a {5-Clubs} {J-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds} flop out on board. Andrew Lichtenberger was the one out of position in this three-way pot, and he check-raised Guillaume Darcourt and another player. Both opponents promptly got all their chips in, and now it was Lichtenberger facing the decision.

After some time, he mumbled about not being able to fold now, then slid his chips into the middle as well.

Mr. Opponent turned up {Q-Spades} {J-Spades} for top two, but he was already well behind Darcourt's {5-Spades} {5-Hearts}. Lichtenberger had his gamble on, and his {6-Clubs} {8-Clubs} was drawing live for the double knockout.

The turn was the blank {A-Hearts}, but the river {4-Clubs} was just what Dr. Lichtenberger ordered.

"Chewster!" Antonio Esfandiari piped up as the river card hit. He then turned his attention to us: "Make sure you put in the updates that he check-raised the flop with eight-high against top two and a set," he instructed. "Eight-high."

Eight-high gets there for "LuckyChewy1", and his flush earns him a big pot and a big boost up to about 130,000 in chips.
