Lui Takes His Stand


We've been watching Patrick Lui essentially being blinded off here during the hand-for-hand period. He's been folding around with his short stack dwindling down below 5,000, but he finally found a spot to take his stand. Lui put his last 4,000 in with {A-Clubs} {8-Spades} in the cutoff seat, and Sean O'Reilly isolated him with a reraise from the button. His {2-Spades} {2-Diamonds} was flipping for the knockout, and Lui stood up to sweat his fate.

The {A-Diamonds} {5-Spades} {A-Hearts} flop was a good one for the ace-eight, and the shortest stack in the room managed to double after the safe {Q-Spades} turn and {10-Spades} river. Actually, it's nearly a quintuple up as Lui now sits with 19,000 — enough to sit still for about two orbits if he needs to.
