Gordon Finds Black Aces For Fifth Time and Commits Regicide

Colin Gordon Collecting the Pot

From the button, Jason Wojciechowski found himself in a predicament as he had three-bet to 11,000. The player in the big blind called and Colin Gordon made a huge all in shove from under the gun for 171,000.

Wojciechowski was deep in the tank and counted out how much of his stack the shove was for as he had a healthy stack himself. Eventually he pushed the counted out 171,000 forward and announced call, the big blind snap folded and suddenly there was a pot of over 350,000 in the middle.

It was exactly the news that Wojciechowski feared as his {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds} cowboys were up against the {a-Clubs}{a-Spades} black aces of Gordon.

Both players stood up as the flop came {8-Spades}{q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}. The turn was the {3-Spades} and the river came the {4-Hearts} to hold the aces and give Gordon the massive pot while wounding Wojciechowski severely.

"That's the fifth time I have gotten black aces today" said Gordon. "I was down to as low as 6,000 just twelve hands ago" he added as he now sits among the largest stacks in the room.
