Partin With Jurgens' Chips

[user66118] • Level 16


We picked up the action on fifth street as Meikle Partin was getting awfully short on chips. His board showed (x-x) / {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{6-Hearts}, and Tad Jurgens was working with (x-x) / {3-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}. On fifth, Partin bet, and Jurgens tanked and called. On sixth, Partin bet his {8-Clubs}, and it left him with just 300 lonely chips. Jurgens pulled the {Q-Diamonds}, and he announced the call before he realized the remainder, so the two men just went ahead and put the rest of the money in. Partin didn't like it, but he was well ahead. He showed {K-Diamonds} {K-Spades} in the hole, and Jurgens could only muster {J-Hearts} {J-Diamonds}. On seventh street, Partin drew the {8-Spades} to make two pair and take some of the sweat off, needing only to dodge a jack now. Jurgens flipped over the {8-Hearts}, though, and Partin has doubled up to around 40,000 with that life saver.
