Erick Lindgren has had a great run this afternoon, seeing his stack increase to almost six figures. We recently watched Lindgren call a raise to 3,500 out of the small blind, with his opponent in middle position. On the {5-Spades}{k-Spades}{9-Clubs} flop, Lindgren fired out a bet of 4,500 and his opponent instantly called. When the {8-Hearts} hit the turn, Lindgren bet 17,500 and this time his opponent thought long and hard. Eventually the player opted to let his hand go and Lindgren raked in some new chips.

Lindgren has had some success in this form of poker in the past, final tabling a $5,000 buy-in pot-limit omaha hi-low event in 2004. He will be looking to do even better today and so far, so good.
