Matthew Henson Triples Up

First to act, Matthew Henson moved all in for his last 85,000 chips. It folded around to Nicholas Rampone on the button who made the call. However, David Diaz had other plans and three bet to 210,000. Justin Sternbern, who was in the big blind, got out of the way before Rampone tank-folded.

Diaz: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
Henson: {3-Spades}{3-Diamonds}

Right on the flop Henson got what he was looking for. The {6-Spades}{q-Hearts}{3-Spades} spread gave him a set and put him in great position to triple up. The {j-Clubs} turn and {k-Diamonds} river were bricks for Diaz and Henson is back up to 300,000.
