Miracle Deuce Earns Lakemeier a Double

MrCleverFox • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 4,000 ante
Jens Lakemeier

No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw

Jerry Wong opened from the cutoff with a raise to 44,000. Next to act was Jens Lakemeier and he moved all in from the button. Andrew Kelsall immediately capped his cards and dropped into the tank from the small blind.

"I couldn't wait for it to get to me," Kelsall said. "My chips were gonna be in there so fast."

"You guys act like my raises mean nothing," Wong said.

"This is the third time this has happened to me," Kelsall said. Eventually Jason Stockfish called the clock and, with 10 seconds left, Kelsall folded.

"Call. Pat." Wong said in immediate succession.

Lakemeier groaned. He looked at his hand and couldn't decide what to do. Eventually he pitched one in.

"Jack-seven?" Ashton Griffin asked. Lakemeier nodded.

"Good break," Wong said. He turned up {10-}{8-}{7-}{6-}{4-}.

Lakemeier was holding {7-}{6-}{5-}{4-} and needed a two, a nine, or a ten to stay alive. He flipped up the last card and revealed a {2-}, securing him a double-up through Wong.

"Nice break," Wong said again. A relieved Lakemeier stacked his new found chips from his double up.
