A lot of commotion was coming from one of the tables in Amazon Purple, so we rushed over.
"Oh my god! Oh my god!" Fatima Nanji exclaimed, excited about what had just happened.
"Is this your first time playing poker?" one player with sunglasses on asked sarcastically.
Nanji ignored the comment, took a photo of the board, and started texting with still a huge smile on her face.
French poker pro Francois Tosques was kind enough to fill us in on the details of the hand.
Nanji opened the action with a raise to 400 from late position and the player on the button called. The small blind called as well and so did Tosques in the big blind. Both blinds checked on and Nanji continuation bet 800. The button and small blind called. Tosques folded.
The hit the turn and would prove an action card. The small blind checked again and Nanji bet 2,200. The button raised to 4,400 and the small blind check-three-bet to 9,600. Nanji called and saw the button push all in for about 42,000. The small blind called all in for about 51,000 and action was on Nanji. She tanked for about five minutes, according to Tosques, before she called all in for about 40,000.
Nanji needed the board to pair and it did just that: on the river! That gave a triple-up to Nanji, and the button and small blind were both decimated.
