Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Three Times the Fun!

Jonathan Driscoll

How about some three-way preflop all-in, hmm?

Jonathan Driscoll (~2.4 million), Brandon Steven (2.695 million), and Jakob Toestesen (~2.5 million) went ahead and just got it all in there with Steven having both players covered. "I've got an all in and two calls," the dealer announced loudly.

Driscoll: {K-Clubs} {K-Spades}
Steven: {A-Diamonds} {K-Diamonds}
Toestesen: {A-Clubs} {J-Diamonds}

The flop was pretty sick for one of our three combatants. It came {9-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds} {Q-Diamonds} to flush the board and paint Steven's world red. He let out a beastly cheer and screamed, "Was that a sick flop or what?!?" A couple of the players didn't take too kindly to his celebration, and they rather impolitely reminded him that there were still two cards to come. "Don't celebrate too early," someone said.

For a good sweat, the {Q-Hearts} paired the board on fourth street, and Driscoll picked up three outs to the win. The river {5-Spades} was a blank, though, and Steven has claimed his two victims. Toestesen gets the lower payout spot by virtue of his shorter stack, so he's out in 40th place. Driscoll is out 39th, and the last thing we heard him say as he left was, "You should gloat a little more after you win," in the direction of Steven.

The man in question is now up to 7.8 million after that double kill.
