A curious three-way hand just took place on Table 1. A short-stacked Wolfgang van Breukelen pushed all in for 1,200, Franciscus Dekkers called and John Duthie, in the big blind I believe, checked his option.
Both remaining players checked the flop, only for Dekkers to check-call, albeit it after a quick recheck of the cards, a bet of 1,000 from Duthie on the turn.
The on the river led to a quick bet of 2,000 from Dekkers, which Duthie called. "Sick," commented van Breukelen as Dekkers flipped for the straight, van Breukelen's leading on the flop, but out-gunned on the turn.
Duthie, meanwhile, confessed to pocket aces. "I didn't look preflop," he added.
