Tommy Helms Doubles Thru Stanechewski

$1,650 No Limit Hold’em WPT Championship

Level 17:  Blinds 2,500/5,000/500 ante

After Brenda Lane-Worley limped, Paul Stanechewski raised to 30k.  Tommy Helms (button) shoved for 51k.  Brenda folded (later said pocket Tens) and Paul called.

Tommy was in need of help with Ah7h.  Paul was ahead with pocket Queens.  The board ran out 8h6s2h5s9c giving Tommy a straight and the double-up to ~115k.

Still 29 players.  Still two spots from the money.
