[user20283]

Moments later Wolters was all-in for his last 66,000 chips and Badecker called from the button as did the player in de small blind. The flop came down {6-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{K-Hearts} and Badecker got his chips all-in again.

Renaissance For Strickland

Kenneth Strickland is having a barn storming level 20. He is now up to 410,000 chips and here is how.

Then Andrew Badecker opened up the action from the cutoff, Joseph Couden moved all-in from the button, Strickland also moved all-in from the big blind and Badecker folded. Strickland's {A-Diamonds} {K-Clubs} held true against the {A-} {Q-} of Couden and Couden was out.

Wolters Doubles On The Turn

[user20283]

Andrew Badecker raised the action pre flop to 22,000 and got called by two players, Derek Wolters was in the big blind. The flop came down {10-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{2-Spades} and Wolters lead out for 30,000 with just 56,000 left behind. Badecker gave it some thought and called after which the third player folded.

The turn was the {A-Diamonds} and Wolters moved all-in. Badecker wasn't happy but eventually made the call. Wolters showed {K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} and Badecker threw his cards face down towards the muck. "He's not allowed to do that, it's an all-in pot", Dan Smith said after which the dealer retrieved the cards and showed {10-Spades}{9-Spades}. Badecker was obviously drawing dead and the river was the meaningless {10-Clubs}.
