Event #23: $2,500 Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

Liu Active, Stack Showing Fatigue

JJ Liu got a few of her chips back against Dana Kellstrom when her {A-Hearts} {J-Hearts} found an ace on the board of {7-Clubs} {8-Clubs} {A-Spades} {8-Diamonds} {3-Spades}. Dana Kellstrom called a bet on the flop and turn, and both players check-checked the river. Kellstrom's {9-Hearts} {9-Clubs} were second best, and that moved Liu back up to about 125,000 for the time being.

A few hands later, Liu raised under the gun, and Anh Le three-bet her from the next seat over. Liu called and checked a flop of {9-Clubs} {5-Hearts} {2-Spades}. When Le bet, Liu raised, and her opponent called the extra small bet.

Liu led out with a full bet on the {Q-Clubs} turn, only to see Le raise it back at her. After some head shaking and sideways staring, Liu counted out a reraise but eventually let her hand go with a reluctant slide across the felt.

"I didn't need the turn," Le said after a minute or so.

"Aces? Kings?" Liu asked. Le nodded and both players tapped the table in acknowledgement. Liu is back down arond 75,000.
