Another Shorty With a Shak Attack

Shamus • Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

In a blind-vs.-blind, preflop all-in situation with her opponent sitting to her left, Beth Shak just lost about 6,000 from her stack. She was ahead with {A-}{2-} versus her foe's {K-Spades}{8-Spades}, but the board came {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{8-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{J-Hearts}, giving the big blind a better pair and the pot.

"I haven't won one all in when I've been ahead today," said Shak. Indeed, that wasn't the first time we've seen a short stack double through with a worse starter against her today. She's at about 28,000 at present.
