Trips for the Bear

On a board of {8-Spades}{A-Clubs}{8-Clubs}, two players checked to Barry Greenstein on the button who also checked. The {5-Hearts} fell on the turn. The first player checked to the player in middle position who bet 450. Greenstein made the call and the other player got out of the way. The {9-Clubs} came on the river and it was checked to Greenstein, who came out for 1,300. The bet was called and Greenstein tabled {K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for a flopped set of eights.

The Bear is now sitting with about 16,000.
