Jacques Balzan Out in a Chiplead Pot


The hand started with a limped 3-way pot.

The flop came: Queen Jack 8 and Jacques lead out from the Big blind for 2.5k, the limper raised to to 10k, Jacques called.

Turn brought another 8, this this the action went check/all in/call.

The limper had flopped a straight with his 10 Diamonds 9 Diamonds and was ahead against Jacques' Queen Jack.

Jacques needed an 8, Jack or Queen on the river but it was a blank.

He was slighty covered and had to head out, just a few minutes before the end of day 1.
