Krogness Doubles Through Leo C

20 5000/10000 1000

After a mid position limp, Leo C limped on the button.  Steve Krogness completed in his SB, and Tracy Stearman checked her option.

A Q♥ Q♠ T♦ flop got checked to Leo C on the button who bet 18,000.  Krogness quickly moved all in for 40,000 total, and all folded to Leo C who made the call for 22,000 more.

Krogness was in a bit of trouble as he learned his J♣ 9♦ was against Leo’s K♠ J♥, but that trouble disappeared when a K♣ on the turn gave Krogness a straight.  The 4♥ river couldn’t let Leo overtake the straight, and Krogness scored a double up around 120,000.  The hand left Leo down to around 60,000.
