Lech Under Pressure; Renelier Gone
$1,150 TKPT Main Event Day 1b 17/19
Level 5: 100-200 / Ante 25
The seat of Sylvie Renelier was empty and Matt Satterwhite confirmed that he took the remainder of Renelier’s stack after hitting a straight against the jack-ten for top pair. That brought Satterwhite’s stack up to around 40,000.
One table over, Michael Lech lost a fairly big pot to Otto Shtapler and was then involved in another hand right away. Nicolas Leoton raised to 550 and Lech defended the big blind. The duo checked the 10c9s8h flop before investing 3,000 each on the 4c turn. The 8c river was checked, and Lech announced king-ten. Leoton turned over QhJs for a flopped straight and moved up to 35,000, leaving Lech on around 4,500.
