Cheyenne Courtright

Cheyenne Courtright put her last 30,000 in the middle before the flop and went four ways.

The flop came {j-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} and the action checked to Wasim Soomro who put in a bet of 50,000 and both players snap-mucked.

Cheyenne Courtright: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Wasim Soomro: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

"I flopped trips!" Said Courtright.

Her trips quickly improved as the {j-Spades} hit the turn, giving her quads and the {3-Hearts} river was just a formality as she collected the pot.
