Big Action at Table 449

• Taso 7: 300-600, 75 ante
Justin Lunin-Pack

Prior to the break, Justin Lunin-Pack raised to 1,125 in early position, Seyed Edalat three-bet to 4,000 on his direct left, and a player on the button called. Brian Ballentine then four-bet to 14,900 out of the big blind, Lunin-Pack five-bet to what looked like 43,125 — he haphazardly threw a stack of oranges and yellows forward — and Edalat called all in.

The player on the button folded, and Ballentine committed the remainder of his stack.

Lunin-Pack: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Edalat: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Ballentine: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

Lunin-Pack was in good shape to win an additional 60,000 or so and push his stack over 200,000, but the {k-Hearts} poked through the window to give both of his opponents a superior pair. It was followed by the {10-Clubs} and the {j-Clubs}, however, giving him an open-ended straight draw.

The turn was the {j-Hearts}, pairing the board, and a meaningless {2-Hearts} completed the board. Lunin-Pack's two opponents doubled, while he dropped down to 150,000 chips.

Justin Lunin-Pack US 150,000 -36,000
