Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Lodden Thinks A Chop Will Do


Jonathan Duhamel opened it up with a raise to 250,000 from the hijack position before Johnny Lodden pushed all in from the button for an additional 1.11 million. The blinds folded and Duhamel made the call.

Duhamel: {A-Spades}{9-Spades}
Lodden: {A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}

Lodden was dominated and staring elimination in the face but the board was spread {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{Q-Clubs} to give both players queens and deuces with an ace kicker for a chopped pot. Lodden remains alive, but the short stack of the field with about 1.5 million.
