Prateek Chandra has been in the middle of many big pots today and found himself in yet another pick with Nate Lindquist the beneficiary. Lindquist was under 100,000 when Day 2 started but is now over 700,000 thanks to a recent double up through Chandra.
Lindquist opened to 22,000 from early position and was three-bet by Chandra to 80,000. Lindquist called and the flop came down 10♠5♠3♠. Lindquist checked the flop over to Chandra, who shoved effectively for Lindquist’s stack of 300,000. Despite not having a spade, Lindquist called with A♣A♦ and was ahead of Chandra’s Q♣Q♥.
The last two streets were blanks and Lundquist is now up to 720,000 thanks to his double up as Chandra falls to below 200,000.
