Laben Doubles Through Elsby

[user135779] • Livello 23: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Craig Laben has just scored a much-needed double-up in the first hand after the break, courtesy of Matthew Elsby.

Laben raised from early position and the action folded around to Elsby who reraised it from the blinds. Laben four-bet it, but Elsby came back with a five-bet. Laben called, leaving only 10,000 behind, which he threw in after Elsby checked to him on the flop of {2-Spades}{7-Spades}{J-Clubs}.

Elsby called, tabling {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}, with his overpair still ahead of Laben, who had hit top pair with {J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}. To Elsby's disgust, the {8-Spades} spiked on the turn, and if that wasn't enough, a repeat {J-Hearts} appeared on the river to fill Laben up for the double-up.

Elsby is still shaking his head in disbelief as he looks down at his stack, now only worth 165,000 in chips.
