$100,000 Challenge

Le Doubles Back


Nam Le has been waiting to squeeze out a good hand for a while now, and he finally found his spot. It happened behing a Gus Hansen raise to 12,500, and Le got it all in for 42,500 total. Hansen took the liberty of pulling the 12,000 out and breaking down Le's remainder before talking himself into the call. "It's such a good price," he surmised as he splashed the chips into the middle.

Le showed just the {10-Spades} first, and Hansen chirped, "That's not a good card for me." Le rolled over {A-Spades} {10-Spades}, and he did indeed have Hansen's {Q-Spades} {10-Hearts} sufficiently dominated. The {3-Spades} {7-Clubs} {4-Spades} {3-Diamonds} {8-Spades} board was money in the bank, and Le has flushed his way to the double.
