Three-Way All-In Insanity for Donev

GeoffFisk • Level 8: 200-300, 0 ante

Big O

Ivo Donev opened under the gun and four players called, including Scott Clements in the cutoff.

The flop came {2-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}. Donev led the betting again and the player in the hijack, as well as the small blind, called again. Both Clements and the big blind folded, and the three remaining players proceeded to the {10-Diamonds} turn.

The small blind checked, Donev bet 5,000, the hijack called, and the small blind went all-in for his remaining stack. Donev and the hijack called, bringing about the {6-Spades} river. Donev and the hijack then got the last of the chips in, with Donev having both the hijack and small blind covered.

Ivo Donev: {a-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}
Hijack: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{3-Spades}
Small Blind: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

Final Board: {2-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{6-Spades}

Donev excitedly tabled his hand when the betting was done, and it took a couple of minutes to clear up who won what and how much. In the end, it was the small blind taking the high with the {a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for the nut flush, and Donev and the hijack chopping the low, both using the {a-}{3-}. All three players remained in the tournament after the exhilarating hand.
