Tsoukernik Doubles Through Leonard

zedmaster84 • Level 12: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Steve O'Dwyer raised to 27,000 from early position and Leon Tsoukernik called on the button, Patrick Leonard filled up from the single big blind. On the flop of {8-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{3-Clubs}, Leonard checked and O'Dwyer bet 38,000. Tsoukernik called that bet with the words "you are a blackjack player, three eight, I play blackjack too."

Leonard then check-raised all in for 323,000 and O'Dwyer quickly folded. Tsoukernik and Leonard spent a few minutes with table talk before the clock was called on the former. Half a minute later, Tsoukernik called to put himself at risk for 225,000.

Leon Tsoukernik: {A-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Patrick Leonard: {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

The {7-Clubs} on the turn made things even more spicy for Leonard with the added flush draw, but a blank {5-Diamonds} on the river changed nothing anymore and Tsoukernik doubled. Leonard was left with just over eight big blinds after the hand and has some serious work ahead.
