Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Lemke Spikes Five to Stay Alive

[user80015] • Level 20: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Catching the back action of a hand involving Brian Lemke and Jonathan Little, we found Lemke pushing all in following a series of preflop raises as Little made the call.

Lemke: {A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Little: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}

The {5-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop gave the 2009 champion of this very event outs, and when the {5-Spades} spiked on the turn he was ensured a double unless the case ace fell.

Fortunately for Lemke, the {10-Spades} fell on the river to see his 382,000-chip stack double through to over 770,000 as Little slips to 260,000 in chips.
