Donnell Caught in the Crossfire

BrandonTemple • Level 21: 10,000-15,000, 15,000 ante
Lance Donnell

Bjorn Peterson raised to 35,000 from under the gun, and Lance Donnell called in the small blind, while Tyler Burke committed his last 25,000 in the big blind.

Donnell jammed for 280,000 on the {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop, and Peterson immediately called.

Tyler Burke: {j-Clubs}{9-Spades}
Lance Donnell: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Bjorn Peterson: {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}

Peterson was ahead with his ace-queen, but Burke caught up on the {9-Clubs} turn, leading him to jump for joy. The {8-Hearts} river bricked off, and Burke's cinderella story continued, as he chipped up to 90,000 (and stole the blinds next hand to hit 130,000 before break), while Donnell hit the rail.
