Event #17: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

One Double Up And The Big Stacks Tangle

[user38873] • Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Robert Cramer raised to 50,000 and then folded to the all in of the big blind for 176,000. One hand later we had a battle of the blinds with Michael Wilson opening the action from the small blind and then calling the all in of David Smith rather quickly.

Smith: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}
Wilson: {Q-Hearts}{J-Clubs}

The {A-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} flop provided a hit for both players, but neither the {6-Hearts} turn nor the {4-Diamonds} river improved the hand of Wilson. Smith doubled up for 369,000 chips and Wilson lost almost two third of his stack.

We also saw a big pot between two of our biggest stacks. The {Q-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Clubs} board was already complete and Mitchell Lehman bet 130,000 for about half pot, Doc Barry considered his options and then threw in one chip for the call. Lehman's bluff with {A-Hearts}{K-Spades} was caught and Barry won the pot with {3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}. "Nice call," his opponent said the rest of the table nodded.
