Jens Lakemeier

Big O

Jens Lakemeier opened to 15,500 from the cutoff. Ryan Hughes called from the button, and the two went heads-up to the flop.

On the {2-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{A-Hearts} board, both players checked to see the {Q-Diamonds} on the turn. Lakemeier fired 32,000, and Hughes called. The river was the {7-Clubs}, and Lakemeier fired again, this time putting out a bet of 87,000. Hughes thought for a couple of minutes, then annoucned a call.

Lakemeier showed {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} for a Broadway straight and seven-six for a low. That earned him both sides of the pot as Hughes mucked his hand, and Lakemeier solidified his position as the chip leader.
