Palokangas Wins a Family Pot

Jaxon • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante
Johan Palokangas

It is rare to see all eight players at the table in a pot. This is, even more, the case on Day 2.

This is exactly what happened and it all began when Daragh Davey opened to 4,500 from under the gun. Everyone at the table called including Jussi Mattila, Mathias Siljander, Jari Hurri, and Johan Palokangas in the big blind.

"Family pot!" yelled Siljander before a few others players chimed in saying the same before the {9-Clubs}{7-Spades}{q-Diamonds} came on the flop.

The action folded to Mattila in middle position who opted to bet 12,000. It folded back around to Palokangas who jammed for 36,400. Matilla snap-called and turned over {q-Spades}{j-Spades} and needed help to beat the two pair held by Palokangas with {9-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}.

Palokangas doubled up after the {6-Hearts} came on the turn and the {2-Clubs} came on the river.

"Have fun writing that one up," Davey said as PokerNews was walking away from the table.
