Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em

Idema Loses One Early

With a 1st and 2nd place in the last two Limit Holdem Championship events at the World Series of Poker, a lot of the attention will be on Daniel Idema today. He has taken a small hit to his stack early here, but it's Limit Holdem, so there is still plenty of time. In the hand in question, Idema and one opponent took to a {5-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{8-Spades} flop in a raised pot. We then saw both players commit a bet and raise on the flop before the dealer slammed a {6-Hearts} on the turn. Idema threw in another bet on the turn and a call would see an {a-Hearts} complete the board on the river. This time both players tapped the table and turned their hands over.

Idema's {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} wasn't strong enough for the {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades} of his opponent and so his chips went in the opposition direction.
