Smith Takes Some Off Higgs

Ernestok • Level 15: 2,500-5,000, 0 ante

Samuel Higgs had a clear chip lead but Matthew Smith managed to take some chips from him, and now he will have to fight in order to bag the chip lead for the night.

In the crucial hand, Samuel Higgs was in the button and bet 22,000 after Smith's check, who announced pot for 92,000. Smith had only 10,000 more behind him and Higgs re-raised after two minutes in the tank, with Smith calling.

Matthew Smith: {q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{3-Spades}
Samuel Higgs: {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{10-Spades}{6-Clubs}

"Oh, tens, not what i wanted to see," said Higgs when he faced his opponent's hand. The {4-Clubs} on the turn and the {7-Clubs} on the river didn't change anything and Smith doubled up.
