Jason Tompkins is a very happy boy as his Tweet below shows.
Boooooom, sickest hand ever!!! Just doubled entire stack #EptSanRemo #stackemOctober 09 2012Follow
We had a little chat with him and got most of the details.
He opened from the cut-off and called when Amerigo Santoro three-bet to 74,000 from the small blind. The flop came down and Tompkins called a c-bet to head to the turn.
When faced with a 120,000 bet he raised to 285,000 and snap-called all in when Santoro shoved. He opened pocket eights for a set but was behind the wheel of Santoro who held . The river came to the Irishman's rescue as it came to pair the board.
