Getting Back on the Turn

Markus Lau

Pre-flop, a player declared he was all-in and Markus Lau made the call.

Markus: {10-}{10-}
Opponent: {k-}{q-}

Markus was ahead pre-flop with his pocket pair but lost his lead as the first three cards came {k-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}.

However, he wrestled the lead right back as the {10-Diamonds} landed on the turn, giving him the set and leaving his opponent drawing thin.

A harmless {8-Clubs} landed on the river, giving Markus a virtual double-up and leaving his opponent with just 100 in chips left.
