Event 38: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Unlucky for Lex

Lex Veldhuis not in great shape

"This is a joke," said Lex Veldhuis at the end of this fairly brutal hand.

When we arrived at the table, there was a flop showing {4-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and Veldhuis and two opponents were each committing 1,000 each. On the {k-Diamonds} turn, the play was checked to Veldhuis and he bet 3,700. Only one player, Kurt Younker, would call and the {7-Spades} completed the board on the river.

This time Younker bet 7,000 and Veldhuis shoved all-in, having his opponent covered. Younker instantly called and tabled his {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for a rivered straight. That's when Veldhuis said the hand was a joke.

Veldhuis flung his {6-Hearts}{3-Hearts} onto the felt, his flopped straight managing to be outdrawn by Younker.
