Michael Lipman Suffers a Setback – Still Has a Massive Stack

The button raised to 3,500 and the small blind called preflop. Michael Lipman reraised to 13,000 on the big blind. The button reraised all in for 16,800 more and the small blind called all in. Lipman called to cover both of them and the three players flipped over their cards.

Button: KdQc
Lipman: 9s9c
Small Blind: 8d7d

Board: QsJh10h10s5d

The button won the hand to effectively triple up and Lipman took a hit, although he is still in the chip lead for notable players with 228,000.
