Corkins Triples Up


Hoyt Corkins was all in and had two callers on a {4-Spades}{2-Hearts}{7-Spades}{9-Spades}{A-Hearts} board. We don't know when he managed to get all in, but we can assume it was early in the hand because he was dangerously short stacked. Corkins showed {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} for trip aces. Both his opponents mucked, but one claimed to have flopped two pair. Corkins had a lot of outs going to the river as any spade would have also won it for him.

Three's a Party

[user198174] • Level 1: 400-800, 0 ante

We don't know the action preflop, but when we got to Table 287 Todd Witteles was putting out a bet on a {Q-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{8-Hearts} flop. Witteles received a call from Randy Propson and Brian Faber. The {4-Clubs} on the turn brought another bet from Witteles and a two bet from Propson. Faber, the forgotten horse in this race smooth called, as did Witteles.

A {A-Hearts} on the river allowed Witteles to check, and Propson to bet. Faber called and when action got back to Witteles he acted distraught and visible upset, clearly convinced he had gotten unlucky. Propson flipped over {2-}{2-} and Faber mucked. Witteles upset one moment was all of a sudden happy he didn't stay in the hand, because he would have lost.

"Floor to Table 289"

[user198174] • Level 1: 400-800, 0 ante

Sean Nguyen put out a bet from the cut off and received a call from Justin Pechie in the big blind. Both players got to see a {6-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{8-Clubs} flop. After Pechie checked, Nguyen put out a bet and Pechie threw a handful of chips in the pot. Pechie had intentions to raise and threw out enough chips to do so, but the dealer failed to notice and thought he simply called the bet from Nguyen. The dealer then burned and turned a {7-}. Pechie calmly told the dealer he had put out a raise and the floor was called. The floor was informed of the situation and declared that the raise counted and that the {7-} would be shuffled back into the deck and not count.

After everything was settled, we were still on the flop and action was on Nguyen who 4 bet into Pechie. Pechie called and we saw a {2-Hearts} appear as a new turn. Pechie then check-called a bet from Nguyen and both players were awarded the {A-Clubs} on the river. Where Pechie this time check-folded after Nguyen bet.

As Nguyen was stacking his chips he asked Pechie if the seven was any good to him. Pechie said it gave him a pair, and Nguyen admitted it gave him an open-ended straight draw. After further conversing between the two players we found out that Pechie had {7-}{9-} and Nguyen held {k-}{9-}.
