Where are Lawson’s Chips?
NLHE $50,000 GTD Event #3 Day 1c 32/96
Heather Alcorn has been eliminated and Peter Lawson, minutes ago the dominating chip leader, may well be the next to bust. Stephane Genet has around 80,000 and Lawson’s stack is melted down to 18,000.
The first big hit to the stack is unknown, but Jean Luc Adam just doubled through Lawson. With 10,000 in the middle and the flop reading 8h 7d 4d, Adam bet 6,000 and Lawson raised only for Adam to shove for 26,000. Lawson called and flipped over the 9c 8d, Adam had the slightly better kicker with 10c 8c.
Neither the Ah turn nor the Kh river changed anything and Adam’s stack shot up to 62,000.
