Event #56: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Blumenthal Low

• Taso 3: 75-150, 0 ante
Eddie Blumenthal found himself in rough shape against queens.

Eddie Blumenthal opened to 300 under the gun, and a player in middle position moved all in for about 2,200. A player in late position jammed as well for around 5,000. Blumenthal, who covered both of his opponents, thought briefly before calling.

Blumenthal: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Middle position: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Late position: {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

The player in late position was in great shape up against two shared overcards. The flop came {3-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, and everything was still roses for him. A {10-Spades} on the turn and {6-Clubs} on the river kept it that way, and he took most of Blumenthal's stack and all of the other player's.

Eddie Blumenthal us 1,400 -6,100
