Event #41: $1,500 Limit Hold’em Shootout

Pechie Dominating Three Handed Play

Justin Pechie

Despite starting three handed play as the short stack, Justin Pechie has been extremely aggressive, and has taken the chip lead after a few big pots. First Mathieu Jacqmin raised on the button, and both Eberle and Pechie called, creating one of the first family pots of the day. The flop came out {2-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, and Jacqmin bet after Eberle and Pechie checked. Eberle called, but Pechie raised. Jacqmin folded, and Eberle called. The turn came the {2-Spades}, and Eberle checked to Pechie, who bet. Eberle mixed it up, as he was the one raising this time. Pechie called, and both players checked the river, the {4-Hearts}. Eberle showed {a-Clubs}{5-Spades} for just ace high, and Pechie showed {j-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} for a pair of jacks.

On the next hand, Pechie put in two bets, and Jacqmin put in a third bet. Pechie called, and the flop came out {k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{2-Spades}. Jacqmin bet out, and Pechie called. The turn came the {8-Diamonds}, and again Pechie called. The river brought the {9-Diamonds}, and Jacqmin bet out a third time. Pechie called once again, and Jacqmin showed {a-}{q-} for just ace high. Pechie showed {k-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} for top pair, and he took a lead in the three handed battle.
