Brabham Calls For "One Time" in Three-Way All in

Level 12 : 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante
Thomas Brabham

"One time! One time please!" yelled Thomas Brabham as he was ahead in a big three-way all in spot.

Thomas Brabham: {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Lucas Priour: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
William Jacobson: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

Jacobson had the largest stack and had the chance to take out two if he were to spike a queen. As the dealer counted out the stacks and got the pots ready, Brabham was questioned why he was using his one time in a spot where he was ahead.

"I haven't cashed in a tournament in four years!" he said "I just want this to hold!"

The flop was great news for his chances to cash as it came {k-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{8-Spades} the turn was the {4-Hearts} and the river the {7-Spades} as Priour was busted and Jacobson greatly damaged while Brabham collected the big pot and gave himself a very good chance to break his cash drought.
