Tompkins and Mackoff in Huge Preflop Confrontation

Jason Tompkins
Jason Tompkins

Jason Tompkins opened with a raise to 80,000 from under the gun. It folded to Jonas Mackoff who three-bet to 190,00 from the cutoff. Cards around the table hit the muck until it was back on Tompkins who wasted no time dipping into his stack and coming out with a four-bet to 345,000.

"All in," said Mackoff.

Tompkins snapped him off and showed {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} which was crushing Mackoff's {A-Hearts}{k-Spades}.

The flop came down {J-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{A-Spades}.

"Queen of spades for a sweat," said Ludovic Lacay from across the table.

The dealer seemed to oblige, as the {Q-Spades} rolled off on the turn. The river, however, was the {8-Clubs} and Tompkins was able to seize a giant pot, crippling Mackoff in the process.
