Lakhdari Continues the Roller Coaster

zedmaster84 • Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

After a raising war before the flop, Omar Lakhdari was all in for his last 131,000 chips and got called by Paolo Compagno. Both players held a pocket pair, but the Frenchman was way ahead.

Lakhdari: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}
Compagno: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}

The flop {A-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{2-Clubs} gave the Frenchman top set while the {Q-Diamonds} turn provided hope of a miracle for Compagno. It was the {3-Diamonds} river that let Lakhdari double up once again and the Frenchman is on a roller coaster ride thus far on Day 3.
