Lester Gets Some Chips Back

Lester Edoc

On a previous hand, Lester called Chuck Jimenez's all in push. Chuck and his {8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} were on the brink against Lester's pocket jacks.

But the flop {9-}{9-}{3-} resulted in an uproar while the turn {a-Clubs} and river {5-Spades} completed the bad beat.

A few hands later, Phil Green moved all in with {q-Clubs}{6-Hearts} and Lester called with {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}.

This time the flop {8-}{8-}{3-} gave the trips to Lester. As in the previous hand, the turn {2-} and river {q-} favored the player ahead on the flop and moved Phil off the felt.
