Lefkowitz Scoops Himself to 50K

[user68268]

Farzad Bonyadi limped under the gun and Matt Lefkowitz folloed right behind him. In middle position, Gary Bolden raised and then action moved around the table to Amnon Filippi in the small blind. He called, Derek Raymond called in the big blind and the two limpers, Bonyadi and Lefkowitz, also called.

The flop came down {Q-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and five-way action commenced with Filippi up first. He checked, Raymond checked, Bonyadi bet, Lefkowitz called, Bolden folded after being the preflop aggressor and then Filippi and Raymond both came along.

Down just one player from five to four, the turn brought the {8-Hearts}. Action checked to Bonyadi and he bet. Lefkowitz called and Filippi called, but Raymond paused for a few moments. He then made the call.

The river card was the {4-Diamonds} and action checked over to Lefkowitz. He was the last player to act and wasn't about to let the showdown come for free. He bet, Filippi called and Bonyadi called. Raymond folded.

Lefkowitz showed the {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}. That was good for the nut diamond flush for the high and an ace-three low, which was also good. Everyone mucked and Lefkowitz scooped a nice pot to pad his stack.
