Sam Stein Triples Up Just Before End of Play

Valerie.Cross • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Sam Stein

With the board reading {9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades}, Dmitry Yurasov had a bet of 75,000 in front of him on the button, Kristen Bicknell had 75,000 in front of her in the small blind, and Sam Stein had moved all in for 157,000 total. Action was on Yurasov and he called. Bicknell called too and Yurasov and Bicknell were now heads up for a potential side pot.

The turn was the {A-Diamonds} and they both checked. They also checked the {Q-Hearts} river and Stein showed {Q-Spades}{9-Spades} for two pair, queens and nines.

Bicknell's {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds} was tabled and so was Yurasov's {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}.

"Oh my god. How the hell did I pull that off" Stein asked when he saw the hands tabled, and he collected the pot for the triple up.
