Libson Cleaning Up

[user38873] • Level 13: 800-1,600, 200 ante

First Brad Libson raised from early position and called the all in from Mike Sowers with {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs} versus {10-}{10-} for 21,000. Libson was able to improve and Sowers headed to the payout desk.

Shortly after we saw Libson raise the button and the big blind defended to see the {6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop. The big blind led for 3,000 and Libson made it 12,000 before the big blind moved all in for what looked like 28,000.

After getting a quick count, Libson called as quickly with {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and played against {J-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. The {9-Diamonds} turn immediately shut down all hopes for the short stack and the meaningless {10-Clubs} river completed the board.

Libson did lose one all in showdown against a short stack in a battle of the blinds, though, when he could not get there with {K-Clubs}{4-Clubs} versus {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}. But he's still sitting with a healthy stack of 225,000.
