Getting There on the Turn

Joe Kwan

We had a three-way all-in over on one of the farther tables, with the biggest stack holding pocket jacks:

Player 1: {a-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Player 2: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Joe Kwan: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

The bigger stacked player looked like he would be eliminating two players in the same hand after the flop blanked out with {6-Spades}{8-Clubs}{k-Spades}. However, it wasn't meant to be as the turn brought the {q-Clubs} to pair Joe Kwan's queen.

A meaningless {5-Diamonds} landed on the river, sending one player out while giving Joe a near triple-up.

He is now at about 26,000.
