We caught Eric Lindgren heads up on a board of and his opponent facing just one bet left. He was forced to wait about a minute before his opponent finally called and the hands were turned up. Lindgren had the lead with against the of his opponent and the would keep him there.
Lindgren recently married fellow pro poker player Erica Shoenberg and after the hand he started playing with his wedding ring. It must have been good luck because the very next hand Lindgren, first into the pot, raised to 800 preflop, and found three callers.
The flop was and the action became what you may call, "nontraditional". After one player checked, Lindgren bet 400, the player immediately to his left called and the second player in position raised, forcing the opponent out of position to fold. Lindgren called but the player who initially flatted Lindgren's bet now felt it was a good time to get in three bets and raised. Both players called.
The turn was the and Lindgren fired out, causing the flop three bettor to now fold. The third player called and the two players went heads up to see the river. Again Lindgren bet and the player behind him just called.
"Have eight eight once in your life," Eric said jokingly when he showed his for a full house. Not this time Eric. His opponent showed for the nut low and the two players chopped the pot.
Eric now sits at about 5,500
