Crazy Three-Way All-in Nearly Ends it All

KaleGozer • Level 39: 500,000-1,000,000, 1,000,000 ante
Aristeidis Moschonas

No-Limit Hold'em

Before the big hand took place, Dan Matsuzuki completed the small blind and Aris Moschonas checked the big blind. Matsuzuki bet 1,100,000 on the flop to take it. Matsuzuki then made it 2,200,000 on the button and Raghav Bansal called the big blind. The flop was {j-Spades}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Bansal checked. Matsuzuki checked behind. The turn brought the {5-Diamonds} and Bansal bet 3,800,000. Fold from Matsuzuki.

Following up on the previous hand, it was now Moschonas' turn to make it 2,200,000 on the button. Bansal three-bet shoved 26,400,000 from the small blind, Dan Matsuzuki went deep in the tank in the big blind and eventually called the all in for the majority of his stack. Moschonas snap over-called, making it a three-way showdown for possibly all the marbles.

Aris Moschonas: {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}
Dan Matsusuzki: {a-Spades}{j-Spades}
Raghav Bansal: {q-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

The flop {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{3-Spades} kept Moschonas in the lead with his jacks, but Bansal picked up the nine to go with his queens to end the tournament on the spot. The turn was the {8-Hearts} and the supporters of Matsuzuki ("Ace! Ace!") as well as Bansal ("Queen! Queen!") screamed on the top of their lungs.

However, it would be the Greek rail that would have the last laugh as the river fell a {3-Clubs}. Moschonas tripled up, while Matsuzuki dragged the still substantial side-pot from Bansal. The latter was left short after the hand.
