Three-Way All In Sends 2013 WSOP Champ to the Rail

Chad_Holloway • Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante
Ryan Riess

Ryan Riess opened the action with a raise to 1,300 from the hijack. Kris Nestorovic called from the small blind, and then a short-stacked Shane Stark shoved all in for 3,425 more from the big. Riess responded by dropping a bunch of chips in the middle, and Nestorovic tossed in a single chip to call.

Nestorovic must have thought Riess had moved all in, but in reality the 2013 WSOP Main Event champ had 4,700 back. The side pot was straightened out, and then Riess moved all in after Nestorovic checked the {8-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{a-Spades} flop. Nestorovic called and all three players tabled their cards.

Stark: {k-}{k-}
Riess: {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Nestorovic: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

Stark was out in front with his set, but Nestorovic was leading for the sizable side pot, though Riess was drawing good to both a straight and flush draw. The {9-Clubs} turn was of no consequence, and neither was the {7-Spades} river. Riess missed to fall to Nestorovic, while Stark tripled his stack in the main pot.
