Saved on the River

Peter Kleudgen

Peter Kleudgen is feeling pretty good right now after hitting his three-outer with just one card to go.

On a board of {j-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}, Peter bet out 4,000 and Steve responded by going all-in. Peter, with the smaller stack, made the call for his tournament life and the cards were tabled:

Steve: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Peter: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

Peter was in big trouble as he had run into a set of tens. Only a king would save him now:

River: {k-Spades}

"Wow!" came the cry from the table as a king magically appeared on the river to give Peter the win and double-up.

Steve could only shake his head as he counted out the necessary chips and gave them to Peter, who is now at about 42,000. Steve, meanwhile, is down to about 12,000 in chips.
