Loosli Loses to Lavallee

Level 11 : 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

Late last night Sylvain Loosli got lucky to crack queens and kings with {a-}{2-} to triple up, but it proved just a one-day extension on his tournament life.

In a recent hand, Loosli got his last 24,800 all in after Jason Lavallee had opened the pot. A call was made and Loosli was actually in good shape to double up.

Lavallee: {k-Spades}{j-Spades}
Loosli: {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}

Loosli had the better kicker, but the {4-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{10-Spades} flop made it so that Lavallee would win if that kicker paired. Sure enough, the dealer burned and turned the {Q-Clubs}. Loosli paired his queen, but it also gave Lavallee a straight.

The {8-Hearts} river was of no consequence, and Lavallee score the knockout.
