Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

"Watch This"

[user101598] • Level 3: 150-300, 0 ante

When we reached Table 365, the flop had already fallen {6-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{4-Hearts}. There was a bet of 5,500, a raise to 12,000, and a third gentleman called all in for 10,500. The original bettor called, and while the dealer pulled in all the bets, the all-in player got out of his seat.

"Rich Murnick," he told our tournament reporter. "Montclair, New Jersey."

The turn was the {4-Clubs}.

Murnick nudged our tournament reporter. "Watch this."

The remaining players got in 6,500 apiece, then 10,000 after the {9-Diamonds} hit the river. Murnick grabbed his cards and slammed {4-Spades}{4-Diamonds} onto the felt as hard as he could, screaming his head off.

A wired pair of queens won the sidepot, but Murnick won the main, tripling to over 40,000 chips.

Tagovi: Richard Murnick
