Hand #71: Ted Lawson Doubles Thru John Racener
Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Hand #71 - Ted Lawson shoves all-in from early position for 425,000 and John Racener calls from the cutoff. Everyone else folds and Racener's KQ is racing with Ted Lawson's 33. The board runs out A921010 and Lawson's treys hold to take the pot.
Ted Lawson - 950,000 (19 bbs)
John Racener - 1,210,000 (24 bbs)
After the hand, Antonio Esfandiari tells Lawson, "We were all rooting for you." Lawson laughs and says, "Yeah, I bet."
Esfandiari asks, "How does it feel to have one person in the room rooting for you?" (Esfandiari is obviously referring to Lawson's wife Michelle.)
Without hesitation, Lawson says, "It feels great, because that one person is the one I love the most."
