Event #58: $1,500 Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold'em

Hunter Gets Lucky to Treble Up

YorkshirePud • Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Hunter Cichy can breathe more easily now that he has 111,000 chips in front of him, courtesy of a very fortunate treble up.

Jason Vanstrom raised, Nipun Java flatted and Cichy squeezed all in for 36,000. Vanstrom then reshoved and Java called, creating a huge pot.

Vanstrom: {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}
Java: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}
Cichy: {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}

"Just take them now!" said Cichy about his lowly pocket fives, but it's a good thing they weren't because the board ran {9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Diamonds}, gifting Cichy an unlikely straight. Vanstrom busted in the hand and Java lost a decent chunk of his stack.
