Martin Matters

When all the other players were leaving for break there was still one hand to be played at Table 370. Alexander Martin raised in early position, the Small Blind then moved all in for about 1,000 more chips, the Big Blind then moved all in for about 65,000. Eventually after thinking it over Martin made the call.

Cards were flipped and it was Martin's {10-}{10-} that was the best hand. He was going up against the Small Blind's {J-}{9-} and the Big Blinds {9-}{9-}. After all chips were put in their right pots the dealer flipped the rest of the cards. {10-}{6-}{5-}{8-}{J-}. With a set of tens Martin delivered the knock out blow to two players and gained a very healthy stack.
