Erik Cajelais at the 2021 WSOP

With three players all-in, Adrian Buckley was the shortest stack and at risk against Erik Cajelais and Truong Nguyen, who had near identical stack sizes.

Adrian Buckley: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Erik Cajelais: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Truong Nguyen: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}

The {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{k-Spades}{8-Spades} board let Cajelais celebrate as his flopped set of nines secured a near triple-up. Buckley's 72,000 vanished and Cajelais doubled through Nguyen for 107,500 to leave his opponent very short.
