Limping with Aces...What Could Go Wrong?

ajlamers • Level 10: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

In a five-way limped pot, the dealer fanned the flop of {j-Spades}{9-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and you couldn't find a more action flop for the cards that were dealt. In a matter of minutes, four players got all of their chips in the middle.

Michael Forca: {a-Spades}{4-Spades}
Alexander Kostritsyn: {q-Spades}{10-Spades}
Button: {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Under-the-gun: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}

All four players had a legitimate reason for getting their chips in the middle but it was the aces that were drawing nearly dead. The turn was the {6-Hearts} which changed nothing but the {3-Spades} on the river gave Forca the nut flush. Forca was all in for 72,100 and nearly earned a full quadruple up.
