Massive Double Up For Lewis with Kings

[user20283] • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Toby Lewis

Ken Demlakian limped under the gun plus one and Phillip McAllister raised to 190,000 in middle position. Toby Lewis, in the hijack, made it 450,000 with 1.5 million behind, and the action folded to David Eldridge in the big blind.

The man who'd just doubled trough Lewis, asked how much his opponent had to play with, before doing some more pondering.

Eldridge eventually moved all in for 2,195,000 and Demlakian folded right away, and so did McAllister.

Lewis didn't look too happy, and he thought for a few seconds.

"I thought you might have aces," Lewis said to Demlakian, who limped in early position, "But now I think you have it," as he direct himself to Eldridge.

Lewis called, and he was happy to see that his opponent didn't have aces.

Lewis: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Eldridge: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}

The board ran out {J-Spades}{9-Spades}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{6-Hearts} and Lewis more than doubled up, leaving Eldridge with just 175,000 chips.
