Event 5: Scheib Doubles Through Lopez

$155 No Limit Hold’em

Level 23: 10,000/20,000/3,000

Amaury Lopez limped in under-the-gun and DJ Scheib raised to 75,000 from middle position. Lopez was the only caller and they see a flop heads-up of Qc8s8d.

Both players check and the 5d fell on the turn. Lopez checks again and Scheib bets 100,000. Lopez asks how much the bet is before making it 200,000. Scheib moves all in for 236,000 more and Lopez snap-calls.

Scheib tabled QhQd and is way ahead of Lopez’s 5c5s. Lopez would need to find the case five to stay alive, but the river was the 9s and Scheib doubles up to just over 1,000,000 in chips.

Lopez is still the chip leader with 2,100,000 in chips.
