Lucky Jacks for Henry Lim


We caught up to the action on one of the far tables with local player Henry Lim all-in on a flop of {5-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{q-Spades}. His lone opponent tanked for a while before finally making the call.

Henry: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Opponent: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

Both had gotten pocket pairs with runner-runner straight draws but it was Henry's pocket jacks that were ahead.

The turn was a meaningless {4-Diamonds} and the river {j-Clubs} did nothing except improve Henry's hand.

He is now at about 31,000.
