Rodman Gets Quartered


On our most recent pass through the tournament area, we discovered Blair Rodman has joined the same table as Erick Lindgren and Humberto Brenes. In a recent hand, an early-position (EP) player raised to 250 and was called by the button and Brenes in the small blind. Rodman was in the big blind and opted to move all in for his sack of 850.

The EP player then went all in for 2,325, the button moved all in, and Brenes folded from the small blind.

Rodman: {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}
EP: {K-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Button: {A-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{J-Spades}{8-Hearts}

The {2-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{7-Spades} flop was kind to the button, flopping him two pair; however, both EP and Rodman had plenty of outs. The {5-Spades} turn gave Rodman the nut low, but the {3-Hearts} river quickly counterfeited him. The button's two pair was good enough to take the high, while he and Rodman chopped the low. In other words, Rodman got quartered.

The button collected the side pot and three-quarters of the main pot, while Rodman barely increased his stack to 975; although, he does have both rebuy chips remaining.
