Table 2 Hands #4-5: Palmer Triples on River

• Level 30: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante
Scott Palmer

Hand #4: From the button, William Tonking opened for a min-raise to 240,000 and Maximilian Senft called from the big blind to see a {6-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} flop.

Senft checked and Tonking bet out 300,000 which was enough for him to collect the pot.

Hand #5: From under the gun, Dan Smith opened to 270,000 and Scott Palmer moved all in for 685,000 from the next seat over. With the action on William Pappaconstantinou a few seats over, he called along with Smith.

The dealer spread a {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{K-Clubs} flop and both active players checked. The turn brought the {6-Hearts} and Smith bet 750,000. Pappaconstantinou folded and the remaining players' cards were tabled.

Smith: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}
Palmer: {A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}

With Palmer in bad shape and needing to spike an ace to stay alive, the dealer delivered the {A-Hearts} on the river to grant Palmer's wish of a much needed triple to 2.37 million.
