Eastgate Doubles Through Levy


Someone must be rigging these decks. For the second time in five hands, a short stack has doubled up by spiking a three-outer on the river. Action started with Eliyahu Levy, who raised it up to 125,000 under the gun. It folded around to Peter Eastgate in the big blind, and he grabbed the rest of his chips, 930,000 in total, and slid them into the middle. Levy called fairly quickly, and was in great shape.

Levy: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Eastgate: {k-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

The flop brought no help for either player, coming {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. Levy was still out in front, and it stayed that way with the {2-Hearts} on the turn. Eastgate would need a nine and a nine only, or else his dream of a second bracelet would be gone.

The river: {9-Diamonds}

Eastgate's rail went crazy while Levy's rail stook in disbelief. After the hand, Eastgate is back up to just under 2 million, while Levy drops down to 4.3 million.
