Event #47: $111,111 One Drop High Rollers No-Limit Hold'em

Palihapitiya vs. Timoshenko

Chad_Holloway • Level 4: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Chamath Palihapitiya opened for 3,000 only to have Yevgeniy Timoshenko three-bet to 8,000 from the hijack. Action folded back around to Palihapitiya, he made a quick call and the flop came down {j-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. Palihapitiya proceeded to snap-check-call a bet of 10,000 and then did the same on the {4-Hearts} turn and {8-Hearts} river, albeit for 25,000 and 65,000 respectively.

Timoshenko then tabled the {a-Spades}{4-Spades} for trips and Palihapitiya threw up his hands in frustration.

"Two outer?" Timoshenko asked and he stacked his chips.

"You hit it," Palihapitiya said suggesting that he had pocket aces. "It'd have been interesting to see an ace."
