Expensive Hand for Lech
$1,150 TKPT Main Event Day 1b 15/20
Level 6: 150-300 / Ante 25
Two players limped in and Michael Lech then made it 1,000 to go on the button. Keith Hart called in the big blind, as did Otto Shtapler in the cutoff. On the Ad10d9d flop, the action checked to Lech and he bet 1,200 with both opponents calling. On the Ah turn, the same action repeated for 2,300 before the 3c river completed the board.
Again it was checked to Lech, who bet 10,000. Hart folded after some consideration with around 31,000 behind, and Shtapler quickly called. Lech turned over AhJs for trips aces, while Shtapler claimed the pot with 8d6d for a flush. Shtapler boosted his stack to 72,000, Lech dropped to 16,000.
