The School of Law


We just had a somewhat humorous moment surrounding an all-in situation between Bobby Law and David "ODB" Baker, although it was certainly much more enjoyable for Law than for Baker.

The pair had gotten all of Law's stack in the middle following a {2-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} flop with Law holding {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs} and Baker a straight flush draw with {5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Law has a number of friends on the rail tonight, and they've made their support known frequently with cheers for Law whenever he's won a hand.

The dealer delivered the turn — the {Q-Clubs} — and Law's aces were still best. Then came the river... the {5-Clubs}.

"Yeaaah!!!" came the cry. "Wait!" then said one of the group as they collectively calculated whether or not the river was good or bad for their man. Then, "Yeaaah!!!" Law had survived, and his fans learned a little more about Texas hold'em in the process.

Meanwhile, Baker has taken a couple of swift hits here in the last hour of play to fall below the average stack.
