Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Lykov Doubles One Up


Action folded to Maxim Lykov who opened the pot with a raise to 1,800. Action folded around to the player on the button and he moved all in for a total of 6,400. When action folded back to Lykov, he quickly called.

Lykov: {K-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Button: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

The flop wasn't very favorable for Lykov when it fell {2-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}, giving him no help and no possibility of backdoor outs. The turn was the {7-Clubs} and that left Lykov drawing to an eight, and only an eight for the elimination. The river though was the {Q-Clubs} and with that the player on the button doubled while Lykov dropped a few chips. Even after that Lykov is still in good shape with over 130,000 chips.
