Hochhuth Hooked

Philipp Hochhuth, the man with the double letters, was looking for a near-double-up with {J-Diamonds} {J-Spades}. He opened to 25,000 from early position, and Richard Lyndaker three-bet to 72,000 from the small blind. Hochhuth shoved all in for just about 450,000, and Lyndaker called with a slightly smaller stack. He had {A-Diamonds} {A-Hearts}, and Hochhuth had some work to do. Jacks into aces again.

The board ran out blanks, coming {4-Hearts} {K-Clubs} {8-Clubs} {6-Clubs} {10-Diamonds}, and the aces hold to give Lyndaker the double.
