Lech Straightened Out By Couden

Chad_Holloway • Level 25: 6,000-12,000, 1,200 ante
Michael Lech

Michael "MiguelFiesta" Lech, who last summer won a gold bracelet, moved all in for 151,251 under the gun and Joey "Buffblastin" Couden called from the big blind.

Michael "MiguelFiesta" Lech: {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Joey "Buffblastin" Couden: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

It was a flip and Lech was looking to hold. He did so on the {10-Spades}{7-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop, and the {9-Clubs} turn improved him to a set. Unfortunately for Lech, the {8-Diamonds} spiked on the river to give Couden a winning jack-high straight.

Lech finished in 50th place for $2,400.19.
