Holloway Shows Down a Set

[user249920] • Level 17: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Bobby Rooney opened to 20,000 under the gun, and Chad Holloway in middle position was the only caller. The players took in a scary-looking flop of {9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{j-Hearts}. Rooney checked, Holloway bet 28,000, and Rooney called. The turn brought the {a-Hearts}, and Rooney once again checked. This time, Holloway checked behind him. The river was a {2-Hearts}, and Rooney came out betting with 40,000. Holloway called immediately. Rooney turned over {A-Clubs}{j-Clubs} for top two pair, but Holloway's {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts} was best for three of a kind.
