Congratulations to David Stamm from San Fransisco, CA who finished 8th in our DeepStack Championship Event #106 $600 NLH DoubleStack $200K GTD winning $9,914.
Blinds: 80,000 / 160,000
David Stamm raised to 320,000 from the hijack and was called by David Margi on the button. Yo Hwan Lim then moved all in for 1,980,000 from the big blind. Stamm snap-called with an additional 50,000 behind. Margi released his hand to the muck.
Lim: 9♦ 9♠
Stamm: A♣ K♣
The board ran out 3♦ 8♦ 6♠ A♦ Q♦, improving Lim to a flush on the river, after Stamm had turned a pair of aces which had him momentarily in the lead.
Two hands later Stamm moved all in for his last 50,000 from under the gun plus one. Gary Herstein called from the small blind. Kevin Garosshen checked from the big blind.
Both players checked the 8♠ Q♠ Q♥ flop before the 3♥ dropped on the turn. Herstein tossed out 300,000 which forced Garosshen out.
“Am I drawing dead?” asked Stamm, before Herstein revealed Q♣ 7♣ for trip queens.
“Yeah,” was Stamm’s response, before he tabled his 6♦ 5♦ for six-high.
The meaningless 7♠ completed the board resulting in Stamm’s elimination in 8th place.
