Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Thorsten Triples


Jennifer Tilly raised to 29,000 under the gun and received a call from Jason Somerville in the small blind. A short-stacked Thorsten Schafer then called all in from the big blinds and it was three players to the {Q-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{7-Clubs} flop.

Somerville checked, Tilly bet 75,000, and her live opponent folded, leaving just Thorsten.

Tilly: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
Thorsten: {K-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

Tilly was ahead with her tens, but Thorsten had an over with a flush draw. The dealer burned and turned the said over, the {K-Diamonds}, which gave Thorsten the lead and left the rest of table awed in disbelief. The {4-Diamonds} blanked on the river and Thorsten received a much-needed triple.
