Kamas Hits Rail After Flopping Trips

Jaxon • Level 7: 300-600, 600 ante
Georgios Kamas

Marian Ivanov bet 3,000 into a pot of a bit more with the {2-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} on the flop. Georgios Farmakis made the call before Georgios Kamas jammed his last 5,700 into the middle.

Ivanov declared himself all-in but the table questioned this move since Kamas' raise wasn't more than a min-raise. Tournament Director Thomas Lamatsch was called over and told Ivanov he could either call or fold.

Ivanov accepted the ruling graciously and made the call as did Farmakis. Both Ivanov and Farmakis checked after the {8-Diamonds} came on the turn.

Ivanov then bet for 7,100 after the {j-Clubs} completed the board on the river. Farmakis jammed for what looked like at least twice as much more and Ivanov snap-called.

Kamas turned over {8-Spades}{2-Spades} for flopped trips and a full house on the river. But he lost the hand with Farmakis turning over {q-Diamonds}{j-Spades} and Ivanov turning over {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for better full houses. The duo split the pot and Kamas collected his things and left the poker room.
