Van Luijk Yielding a Big Stack

[user217945] • Nivå 8: 400-800, 100 ante
Dirk Van Luijk

We may have just found our chip leader here in the Brasilia room, and name is Dirk van Luijk. We don't know where all his chips came from, but after starting the day with 147,900 chips, van Luijk has really bolstered his stack here on Day 2. We caught van Luijk playing a pot that boosted him even further up the leader board.

With the board reading {7-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{9-Spades} van Luijk put out a bet of 6,000 into a pot of about 10,000. His opponent called rather quickly and turned up {Q-}{J-} for a pair of queens with the pair of nines on the board.

"Full house," van Luijk announced turning up his {3-Hearts}{7-Hearts}.

"Flop after flop," someone else at the table said, explaining how van Luijk kept hitting the board.

Van Luijk's full house was good enough to take down the pot and with that he boosted himself close to 440,000 chips.
