Stephen Lim Avoid Quads, Doubles Up

Stephen Lim

Stephen Lim has just doubled up after getting it all-in against Somyung Sim.

Pre-flop, Li You Nan made a raise and Somyung made the call. Action went over to Stephen, who declared he was all-in. Li thought the better of it but it was a different story with Somyung, who quickly made the call.

Somyung: {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}
Stephen: {j-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

Stephen immediately hit on the flop as it came out {6-Clubs}{5-Spades}{j-Diamonds} to give him top pair. The turn and river brought the {9-Diamonds} and {6-Hearts}, respectively, and Stephen got a much needed double-up to stay alive.

While the board was being dealt, it was easy to see Li visibly upset. Apparently, he had folded pocket sixes, and would have ended up hitting quads had he made the call.
