Binger Binks the River


Short stacked Binger did not even have enough chips to pay for a big blind when he moved all in after a player in late position raised. Binger realizing he had no other move, put out his three chips and found some protection as Nathan Gamble on his left reraised. The protection was quickly wiped away as Thoennes also made the call. The initial raiser folded and it was time for a flop.

{10-Hearts}{6-Spades}{K-Clubs} all hit the flop and before we knew it the other two players were betting back and forth until Mark Thoennes was all in against his opponent in a side pot. Cards were then flipped.

Binger: {8-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Thoennes: {10-Spades}{J-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}
Gamble: {K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}

The turn was the {J-Diamonds} a horror cards for both Binger and the other player in the hand, but the river was the {7-Spades} giving Binger a straight. Thoennes essentially doubled up as well with a set of jacks
