Lewis Has His Aces Cracked

Toby Lewis was under the gun and raised to 1,350, which was called by a player in early position. When action folded around to the short-stacked big blind, he moved all in for 8,900. Lewis hesitated for moment before moving all in over the top, forcing the EP limper out of the hand.

Lewis: {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}
Big Blind: {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

Lewis was in a dominating position, and even more so after the {10-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} flop, All he had to do was dodge an eight or running cards, but it could not be done as the {8-Spades} spiked on the turn. The {7-Spades} river was no help and Lewis paid off his opponent, dropping to 25,000 in the process.
