Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Bonding Picks a Bad Time to Shove

• Level 6: 150-300, 25 ante

Lars Bonding was in middle position and went all in for 3,350. The opponent to his left called and the big blind came over the top for 9,300, leaving himself just 800. The player who flatted the initial all in seemed more than stressed by the decision he had to make. Finally, he threw in enough chips to put the second player all in and the call was made.

Bonding: {k-Clubs}{5-Spades}
Opponent 1: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Opponent 2: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Bonding was in a world of hurt as his King was very much dead to the other all in player. The big stack would likely need a nine to take both pots and that's exactly what he got. It came down {7-Hearts}{8-Spades}{9-Spades}. The turn was the {4-Spades} which gave Bonding a live flush draw. The third opponent needed the case king to stay alive by winning the side pot, but that very same king would give Bonding a flush so he had no chance to win the main pot. Regardless, It bricked off with the {5-Hearts} and both players had to hit the rail.
