Michael Lech has some new chips to assemble after finding a double up only two players from the money.
The money bubble presents its own set of danger and Michael Lech can breathe a sigh of relief after finding a double up with a payday in sight.
A player in early position opened for 12,000 and Lech defended his big blind to see a A♥7♦2♣ flop. Lech checked and his opponent continued for 18,000. Lech called and the 10♠ fell on the turn. Lech checked and soon faced a bet of 40,000. It took less than 30 seconds for Lech to move all-in for about twice that amount and his opponent called to put him at risk.
Lech showed A♦10♥ for a turned two pair that was ahead of his opponent's A♣K♣. A harmless 7♠ hit the river and Lech secured the double up to move over 220,000, putting the world traveler one step closer to another cash.
