Massive Three-Way All In Gives Trost the Lead

ajlamers • Level 17: 3,000-5,000, 5,000 ante
Craig Trost

Craig Trost raised it up from the hijack and Greg Merson stuck in a three-bet in the cutoff. The big blind four-bet shipped all in for just over 40,000 and Trost attempted to isolate by re-shoving all in. Merson quickly called off his stack of around 135,000 and all three hands were tabled.

Craig Trost: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Greg Merson: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Big blind: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

The flop came {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and Trost spiked a jack to take the lead over both players. The {8-Hearts} hit the turn and the {9-Spades} completed the board. Trost's set of jacks held up to eliminate both players and give him the chip lead.
