Lavassani Eliminates Opponents In Back to Back Hands

Level 15 : 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

On a flop that read {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}, the small blind led for 6,000, Ben Yu raised all in and Bud Lavassani snap-called. The small blind quickly got out of the way and both players revealed their hands.

Bud Lavassani: {10-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Ben Yu, {9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}

The turn was the {6-Clubs} and the river was the {3-Hearts}, knocking Yu out of the tournament.

The next hand Lavassani limp-called an all-in preflop from under-the-gun player with pocket tens and held up against his opponents ace high, busting players in two consecutive hands.
