Top Two for Lech
$1,150 TKPT Main Event Day 1b 16/20
Level 6: 150-300 / Ante 25
Just before the blinds went up, Nicolas Leoton lost a big pot to Eric Herbert after calling a bet worth 6,000 on the 9d3d5c2s turn before folding to a shove on the Ad turn, sending his stack back down to 19,000 while Herbet moved up to 33,000.
Then, Brian Smith raised to 650 and Franck Guillot called. Michael Lech raised to 2,000 in the hijack and both opponents called. On the Qs10c2c flop, Lech continued for 2,500 and Smith check-raised to 6,000, which just Lech called. On the 9h turn and Jc river, both checked and Lech announced queen-ten, then flipped over Qc10d. Smith mucked the Qd and said he would have called a shove on the flop.
