Wang Chopping Laidlaw

[user162117] • Level 6: 300-600, 75 ante

Daniel Laidlaw was just looking he would be heading home when he got his short stack all in preflop holding {k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} against the {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts} of Jacky Wang. It was a shove in the cutoff and a call from the small blind from Wang that would see the two watch some cards be dealt on the felt.

The {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} flop gave Laidlaw some more outs and when the {10-Spades} hit the turn, Laidlaw would have the straight he needed to survive. Somewhat unfortunately for Laidlaw though, the {9-Hearts} on the river would see the pot chopped.
