Lacey Doubles Through Kovacs At The Death
Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante
Ludovic Lacey opens with a raise to 2,000 from early position, two players fold and Andras Kovac calls. Another player folds and Jean Noel Thorel in the big blind calls too.
The 3108 flop is met with a bet of 3,000 from Thorel, a raise to 10,000 by Lacey and then a massive bet of 28,500 from Kovacs. This last bet causes a chuckle from Thorel and he quicklly folds. Lacey then goes into the tank for almost three minutes before he emerges and announces he is all in.
"I think I have priced myself in to call," informs Kovacs and when he discovers that it is only an extra 20,500 to call he does just that.
The turn is the 2 whcih changes nothing and the river is the K, which means Lacey's pair of tens are the best hand and he will be bagging up around 60,000 chips.
