Le Doubles

Le still the short stack, but feeling better now

Just moments after we wrote about Nam Le nursing the short stack, he found a double up and is back to 70,000 in chips. Here's how it went down.

From the button, Dan Smith raised to 8,000 and Le called from the big blind. The flop came down {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Le led for 7,000 with 13,000 behind. Smith took nearly all of his allotted time and then raised enough to put Le all in. Le quickly called and tabled the {K-Spades}{9-Diamonds}. Smith held the {A-Hearts}{9-Spades}.

The turn brought the {5-Hearts} and kept Le in front with his pair of kings. Smith needed an ace on the river, but couldn't find it when the dealer landed the {8-Hearts} on the end of the board and Le doubled up.
