Layne Flack got the better of better of Brandon Schaefer in one three-bet pot, but things went a little differently the very next hand when Flack three-bet him again.

Schaefer opened to 46,000 and was three-bet to 120,000 by Flack. The last hand Schaefer called before check-folding on a flop. This time he moved all-in for 818,000. Everybody jumped out of their seats as Flack called.

Schaefer: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Flack: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}.

"Just one black nine," pleaded a calm sounding Schaefer.

The board ran {j-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{2-Spades}{7-Clubs} to make Schaefer a full house. He got what he asked for!
