Lackey Triples Up in Massive Clash Between Smith and Obst

zedmaster84 • Level 8: 800-1,600, 0 ante
Micah Smith's Stack Sent Crashing

Paul Lackey was already all in and at risk for 34,200 while a reraise for the pot saw James Obst and Micah Smith invest another 88,400 on top of that for an even bigger side pot. The flop fell {7-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and Obst moved all in from the cutoff for 111,200 with Smith calling.

Paul Lackey: {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{J-Spades}{2-Hearts}
James Obst: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}
Micah Smith: {Q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}

Both the {4-Hearts} turn and {3-Spades} river changed nothing and Lackey tripled up while Obst doubled through Smith in a huge side pot with just ace-king high.
