Third time lucky for Luke

We had 18 players in our Thursday Turbo Tournament, all playing for their share in a prize pool of over $700.

Top three places were paid. Our final three were Luke M, Jake M and Julian B. Julian was all-in with 6-7o against Jake's pocket 8s. Board was 3-10-2-10-5 and with four hearts showing, Jake's flush with the 8 was enough to beat Julian's flush with the 6.

In heads-up, Jake shoved all-in with 10-7o. Luke calls with pocket Ks. Board of Q-A-A-9-2 gave Luke the pot with 2-pair and his first tournament win. Tonight was the third time Luke had played the tournament, but it was the first time he had made it as far as the final table. Congratulations Luke.
