Reilly Fails With Royal Flush

poolshir • Level 19: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Tim Reilly

On table #406, Tim Reilly was a bit upset and was kind enough to tell what had happened, with help from the rest of the table.

Sam Phillips had raised to 3,800 from the under-the-gun position. Tim Reilly called from the cutoff and so did Chris Moorman from the big blind.

The flop came {A-}{A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}, Moorman checked, Phillips bet 5,000 and Reilly called. Moorman got out of the way.

The turn brought them the {10-Diamonds}, Phillips check-called the 6,500 bet of Reilly.

The river completed the board with {4-Hearts}, Phillips checked again. Reilly bet 9,000 while having about 36,000 left. Phillips just called.

Sam Phillips: {A-Spades}{4-Spades}
Tim Reilly: {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}

Reilly was pretty miffed that Phillips only called while he had hit a full house against his own royal flush. The rest of the table all chuckled for a while after that (including Reilly himself).

A few hands later, John Andress was seen leaving the tournament area.
