A Crazy 10 Minutes for Engelbert


To say it's been an exciting ride for Glenn Engelbert in the last ten minutes would be putting it mildly. After doubling through Stephen Hung, Engelbert squared off against David Arsht in back-to-back hands. Both went to Engelbert as he held {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} in the first and {K-Clubs}{K-Spades} in the second.

Those pot both got to the turn, which allowed Engelbert to chip up to 445,000 and put himself back into contention. He seemed to have momentum on his side, not to mention a newfound confidence, but it all came to a screeching halt a few hands later when action folded to Arsht in the small blind and he raised. Engelbert three-bet from the big, Arsht called, and then the latter check-called a bet on the {10-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{9-Spades} flop.

Arsht then turned right around and led out on the {K-Hearts} turn, Engelbert called, and the {A-Diamonds} was put out on the river. Again Arsht bet and Engelbert, and the former rolled over {J-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} for a flopped straight. Engelbert shook his head and showed {A-Spades}{A-Hearts} for a rivered set and his third big pair in less than ten minutes.
