Blain Trips Up

YorkshirePud • Level 6: 200-400, 50 ante

Dermot Blain has just lost some ground after running into the trips of Jonas Lauck.

Blain opened to 900 from early position, two players folded and Fabio Sperling called. Lauck called on the button so it was three-handed to the {2-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} flop. Blain lead out for 1,700, Sperling folded but Lauck called.

Both players checked the arrival of the {9-Clubs} on the turn. Blain then returned to betting when the {j-Hearts} appeared on the river. Blain made it 3,300 and Lauck called.

"Ace-queen?" said Blain in a quizzical manner that suggested he knew his hand was not good.

"I have a jack," came the reply before Lauck showed {K-Spades}{J-Spades}.
