Jacks Double Up Albert Lau

Albert Lau

Pre-flop, Albert Lau got his stack of about 23,000 in pre-flop and got a caller in the cutoff, Claudia Yum, who had him covered by just a couple thousand.

Albert: {j-Hearts}{j-Spades}
Claudia: {9-}{9-}

Albert was ahead with his pocket jacks and would need to avoid a nine to stay alive. He did just that as the board ran out {5-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} to give him the double-up.

He is now at about 48,000 while Claudia is down to about 2,200 in chips.
