Double or Nothing for Liebert


Peter Panos came into the pot limping for 10,000 and John Elliott followed suit in the next seat over. The action passed around to Kathy Liebert, and she ho-hum announced an all in for 72,500 total. Next door in the big blind, Richard Rockwood announced the cold call, and that was good enough to fold Panos and Elliott without too much drama. Cards on their backs, lady and gent:

Liebert: {10-Diamonds} {10-Hearts}
Rockwood: {K-Hearts} {7-Hearts} (obviously aware of the power of the king-axe)

The money would have gotten in on the flop anyways as the dealer rolled out {10-Spades} {K-Clubs} {7-Clubs} to hit both players but keep Liebert in a commanding lead. "I saw the king and the seven first, she said, sitting back down. The turn {9-Spades} and river {8-Spades} kept her set safe, and she's found a double up to about 180,000.
