Lestock Gets It All In

David Lestock


On the first hand back from the break, action folded to David Lestock in the small blind and he raised pot. Carter Gill reraise from the big to get the short stack all in and Lestock made the call.

Lestock: {7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}
Gill: {10-Spades}{9-Clubs}

Lestock knew he had to get something going if he hoped to recover from the pre-break cooler, and it was looking good on the {A-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. Not only could he hit a seven or three to take the lead, he could now guarantee a double with any diamond. It may have been 7-3, but when the {10-Diamonds} spiked on the turn, it was as good as gold.

The meaningless {4-Diamonds} was put out on the river as Lestock doubled his stack, which is still the shortest of all the players.
