Who's the Daddy? Tompkins Is

Jason Tompkins

Jason Tompkins is a very happy boy as his Tweet below shows.

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 {8-}{5-}{4-} and Tompkins called a c-bet to head to the {3-} 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 {a-}{2-}. The river came to the Irishman's rescue as it came {3-} to pair the board.
