Two Steps Back, One Step Forward

Nam Le

Nam Le has just doubled up after seeing his stack take big hits on two recent hands.

Pre-flop, Nam went all-in from under the gun and got a single caller in a middle position player.

Nam: {a-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

Nam was in big trouble with the dominated hand and stayed behind on the flop of {a-Spades}{2-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}.

The turn {6-Diamonds} did not change anything, although he did pick up extra outs.

"Nam will need a three or a five to stay alive," remarked tournament director Lloyd Fontillas.

That's exactly what he got as the {3-Diamonds} on the river gave him two-pair, keeping him alive with less than 25 minutes left in the day.
