Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Get to the Choper!

We don't know what the exact action was, but when we got to the table the small blind reraised a previous bet and made it 12,500. A player in late position then moved all in for 24,800 and Gaberiel Thaler flat called. Action was finally back on the small blind who moved all in for around 35,000. Thaler made the call and everyone flipped over their cards.

Thaler: {A-Clubs}{a-Spades}
Small Blind: {K-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Late Position: {k-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

Thaler was in an unbelievable spot as both his opponent's had each other's outs. Thaler was ecstatic as he was essentially on the verge of tripling up, because he only had the other two players covered by about 10,000. A crowd was growing of players from other tables came over to witness the rare spot Thaler was lucky to be in. The hand wasn't over though and Thaler hadn't won the hand yet. It was still possible for either of Thaler's opponent's to take the hand from him.

The dealer then spread out a {10-Hearts}{8-Spades}{7-Spades} flop which was just what Thaler needed, black cards and no chance for a run run straight. A {j-Hearts} turn made things a little more interesting as a river nine would now chop the pot between all players. With the {9-Hearts} landing on the river Thaler's second worst nightmare had come true he hit a straight, as did his two other opponents. Thaler didn't lose the hand, but he just chopped an almost guaranteed triple up with two players. Thaler was visible crushed as he walked away dejected and confused as the dealer split up all the chips equally.
