Lyndaker Pays Off Sylvia

zedmaster84 • Level 18: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

In a three-way limped pot to the {9-Spades} {6-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} flop, Phil Hellmuth bet 16,000 out of the small blind and then folded when Jonathan Duhamel raised to 45,000, Greg Merson mucked his cards as well.

One hand later, Richard Lyndaker raised from under the gun and Jesse Sylvia defended his big blind. We missed the action on the {10-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} {J-Clubs} flop but Sylvia bet 28,000 on the {2-Hearts} turn. Lyndaker called and did so as well when Sylvia made it 66,000 to go after the {2-Clubs} river. Sylvia showed {J-Spades} {10-Spades} and Lyndaker smashed his cards into the muck.
