Hands #80-82: Neuville Spikes an Ace to Double

[user101598] • Level 28: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Pierre Neuville

Hand #80: Kevin Eyster raised to 100,000 on the button, Andrew Lichtenberger defended his big blind, and the flop fell {3-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}. Lichtenberger checked, Eyster continued for 85,000, and Lichtenberger called.

The turn was the {10-Hearts}, both players checked, and the river was a second consecutive ten - the {10-Clubs}. Both players checked, and Lichtenberger dragged the pot with {a-}{7-} for effectively ace-high.

Hand #81: Eyster was first to act, and raised to 100,000. Pierre Neuville defended his big blind, the flop came {2-Hearts}{8-Spades}{j-Hearts}, and Neuville checked. Eyster tossed out a continuation-bet of 85,000, and Neuville folded.

Hand #82: Neuville raised to 125,000 out of the small blind, Eyster three-bet to 350,000 out of the big blind, and Neuville moved all in for 1.06 million. Eyster snap-called.

Neuville: {a-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Eyster: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

The Belgian hit an ace from space on the {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop, taking the lead, and he held as the turn and river came {8-Hearts}, {j-Hearts} respectively.

Neuville doubled to 2.14 million, while Eyster fell to 2.185 million.
