Kurt Lichtman

After three players saw a flop of 10h9c6s, the UTG+1 player bet 3,300. The player in middle position raised to 7,200, Kurt Lichtman called from the cutoff, and the UTG+1 player also called.

The turn card was the Ad, the UTG+1 player checked, and the middle-position player bet 11,000. Lichtman moved all in for 12,200, and the UTG+1 player folded.

The middle-position player called with 9h9d for a set of nines, but Lichtman turned over 10s10d for a set of tens. Lichtman needed to avoid the last nine in the deck to stay alive.

The river card was the 7d, and Lichtman won the pot with his set of tens to double up in chips.

Kurt Lichtman  –  53,000  (66 bb)
