Lemke Scores The First Double Of The Day

Chad_Holloway

It didn't take long for the first double of the day, which came just 20 minutes into Level 1. That's quite the feat considering players start with a 50,000 starting stack and the blinds are just 100/200 with a 25 ante. Even so, Brian Lemke and Jonathan Jaffe managed to get it all in preflop.

Now you might expect to see two big hands in a spot like that, perhaps aces versus kings, but that wasn't exactly the case. Lemke, who was all in and at risk for 49,975, did in fact hold the {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}, but Jaffe held the mediocre {J-Clubs}{8-Spades}. We're not sure of the betting, but the fact remained the chips got in preflop.

The {A-Hearts}{J-Spades}{K-Hearts} flop gave Lemke hit a set, and the {6-Spades} turn left Jaffe drawing dead. The meaningless {5-Clubs} was put out on the river for good measure, and a rather calm Lemke raked in the pot. Meanwhile, Jaffe was left with just 2,700 and was eliminated a few hands later.
