Patience Pays Off for Dominick French

ElleSriracha • Level 21: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

Jason Cumbers limped in on the button, Wes Gelowitz completed his small blind and Dominick French checked his option in the big blind.

The flop came {10-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and Gelowitz led out for 35,000. Both French and Cumbers called.

The turn was the {q-Clubs}. Gelowitz checked, and French moved all in for 164,000. Cumbers immediately said, "I call him." Gelowitz asked, "He called?" and then he sighed, sending his cards into the muck.

"I've got the second nut", said French. "I've got a queen", replied Cumbers. "You're drawing dead", said French.

The river was the {2-Spades} and French doubled up, giving him the chip lead.

French has been patiently waiting for a hand against Cumbers who has been moving all in on more than a handful of occasions. He now has the chip lead and Cumbers is one of the short stacks.

Lamb Doubles Through Cumbers

ElleSriracha • Level 20: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

Action folded around to Danny Lamb in the small blind and he completed, prompting Jason Cumbers to check his option.

The flop came {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and Lamb jammed for 90,000, standing up in the process. Cumbers asked why Lamb was standing up and he said, "I'm either going to fist pump or I'm going home." Cumbers said, "Okay, I call."

Lamb tabled {a-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for trip aces, and Cumbers tried to muck his hand but the dealer tabled his hand, showing {5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}.

The turn was the {j-Spades} and the river was the {3-Clubs}, giving Lamb the double up he was looking for.

Mike Cartwright moved all in from early position for 71,000 and was called by Lee Symak in the big blind for 70,000.

The board ran out {q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{9-Spades} and Symak doubled up, leaving Cartwright with just a single T1,000 chip.

In the next hand, Cartwright was all in for 1,000 from under the gun and was unable to catch up Jason Cumbers' pocket fours as he mucked his had and didn't show.
