Stephen Lim's Tens Double Him Up

Stephen Lim

A large crowd gathered around Table 3 as Stephen Lim was all-in for his last 72,500 pre-flop with {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades} against a bigger stack's {8-Hearts}{8-Spades}.

After a lengthy wait for the other tables to finish, the cards were dealt. The first three cards looked good for Stephen as they came {a-Spades}{5-Spades}{q-Spades}, keeping his bigger pair ahead and giving him the better flush draw as well.

The turn and river blanked out with the {3-Diamonds} and {4-Diamonds}, giving him a total of about 146,000 in chips.
