Harold's Eights Hold Up

Harold Tsakmaklis

Pre-flop, a player in middle position went all-in for his last 5,700 and got a caller in Harold Tsakmaklis in the button.

The player showed {a-}{7-} and was pretty much looking for an ace after Harold tabled {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}.

Harold was ahead after the flop of {2-Hearts}{3-Spades}{6-Diamonds}. He stayed that way on the turn and the river added to his hand with the {8-Spades}, sending the short stack to the rail.
