Event #36: $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Waking Up With Aces

[user66118] • Level 8: 250-500, 50 ante

A player in early position open-shoved for 8,800, and Lars Bonding three-bet all in over the top. It's a dream spot to look down at aces behind that action, and that's just what happened as a third player called all in for 14,450 with {A-Diamonds} {A-Hearts}. The first shover had {Q-Spades} {Q-Clubs}, and Bonding was trying to play the role of spoiler with his third-best {8-Diamonds} {8-Spades}.

The board ran out {5-Diamonds} {6-Spades} {5-Clubs} {4-Spades} {6-Hearts}, and Bonding couldn't find an out. He's doubled up the aces, slipping down to just 8,000 now.
