Sternheimer Earns Double, But Still in Trouble

Level 26

Limit Hold'em

The limit hold'em round saw Philip Sternheimer quickly slip down to about 125,000, then a hand arose in which Brandon Wong raised from the button, Sternheimer three-bet from the big blind, and Wong called.

Sternheimer then bet in the dark before the flop came {5-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Wong called. The turn was the {Q-Hearts} and Sternheimer bet again (for 60,000), leaving himself but 1,000 behind. Wong raised, Sternheimer called, and Sternheimer showed {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} for trip queens and Wong {4-Spades}{4-Diamonds}. The river was the {K-Clubs} and Sternheimer had doubled.

Before the round was through, however, Sternheimer was back down to just 105,000 after losing a hand to Sebastian Saffari. That one saw Saffari raise the small blind, Sternheimer three-bet from the big blind, then Saffari call.

The flop came {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades}, and Saffari check-called a Sternheimer bet. Saffari would again check-call after the {10-Spades} turn and {K-Hearts} river, then he turned over {K-Clubs}{7-Spades} for two pair. Sternheimer showed his {A-}{6-}, and was down to just over 100,000.
