Event #12: $1,500 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Oh, The Irony

[user75311] • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Andrea Dato and Anders Meli chop a pot.

Of our three remaining players, David Diaz has arguably been the most fortunate with preflop all in situations today. His inferior Ace was able to catch up and chop with a stronger Ace against each of his two remaining opponents. Now it was Andrea Dato's turn to catch up, except he did it to Anders Meli, who must be wondering when it's his turn to get there.

Meli raised his button to 80,000 and David Diaz re-raised from the small blind to 180,000. Dato took a look at his cards and quickly moved all in. Meli isolated by moving all in behind him and Diaz let go of his hand. Meli had the {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} and was in good position to knock out Dato's {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}. But the board paired twice by the turn as it ran out {2-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Spades}{4-Hearts}. The {10-Diamonds} river bricked both players and the pot was chopped... again.
