Event #32: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Dreyfuss' Wild Ride

Josh_Cahlik • Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

After an all in confrontation preflop, Philip Lowery's tournament life was on the line holding {Q-Spades}{J-Spades} against the {A-Spades}{K-Hearts} of Lee Dreyfuss.

The flop fell perfectly for Lowery, coming {3-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{4-Spades}. He improved even further when the {J-Hearts} hit the turn. Dreyfuss managed to pair up when the {K-Hearts} rivered, but it was meaningless against the two pair of Lowery. This hand crippled Dreyfuss, leaving him with only 5,000 in chips.

Dreyfuss folded his next hand, and by the time another hand rolled around, he was left with 1,000 after putting an ante of 2,000 in the middle. He managed to get it all in with {A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} against Marc McLaughlin's {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}. The door card was a {3-Hearts}, pairing Dreyfuss and giving him a lead that he held throughout the rest of the hand. Dreyfuss is still in the danger zone, but has taken the first step to building his stack back up.
