Shane Abbott opened to 8,000 on the button, and Bill Chen three-bet to 27,000 in the small blind. Abbott made the call, and the flop came {q-Spades}{3-Hearts}{j-Clubs}. Chen bet 50,000, and Abbott thought for about 30 seconds before announcing all in.

"I call," Chen said with a shrug.

Chen: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}
Abbott: {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}

Abbott had seen the worst possible flop, but he did pick up some chopping outs on the {k-Spades} turn. The {3-Clubs} river was a blank though, and Chen took nearly all of "Moose's" chips, doubling for 170,500.

"Nice game choice," Abbott muttered to himself.
