Jens Lakemeier Wins a Startling 3-Way All In

No-Limit 5 Card Draw

In a stunning hand, Jens Lakemeier just eliminated both Jerry Wong and Ashton Griffin at the same time.

Ashton Griffin opened from the cutoff with a raise to 55,000. Jerry Wong then moved all in from the small blind with a covering stack. Next to act was Jens Lakemeier, and he called the all-in from the big blind.

Ashton Griffin stood up from his chair, motioned his chips into the pot, pulled them back for a second, then plopped them down, calling, as well.

Wong took three, Lakemeier took one, and Griffin took one.

Griffin turned up {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}{K-Hearts}{K-Clubs} for two pair while Lakemeier was drawing thin with {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}. Wong was left drawing practically dead with {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}. He needed to draw three of a kind to improve to a full house, which he did not do; he showed {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}, making him a worse two pair.

Griffin turned up his last card, showing the {3-Clubs} and keeping his hand the same.

Lakemeier then sheepishly turned over his last card. It was the {Q-Diamonds} making him a full house and scoring him the double knockout.

With that hand, Lakemeier moves into the overwhelming chip lead. Griffin takes fifth place with the shortest stack for $23,235, and Wong takes fourth for $32,804.
