Steicke Loses Some


David Steicke has just taken a small hit to his stack. When we arrived at his table, a short-stacked Daniel Palau was all in and Steicke was pondering his decision.

Eventually Steicke opted to call, turning over {q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}. A this point Palau tabled {a-Clubs}{q-Spades} and Steicke said, "why couldn't you have Ace-King?"

The board ran out with no help for Steicke and Palau took down the double-up, while Steicke took a small hit to his stack.
