Event #8: $2,500 Eight-Game Mix

Malm Triples

• Level 25
Michael Malm Triples Up

No-Limit Hold'em

Steven Wolansky was first to act and opened to 24,000. Eric Crain three-bet to 68,000 from the button and it folded around to Michael Malm who went into the tank. Eventually he opted to flat call. Wolansky stuck around too.

The trio took in a flop of {8-Spades}{j-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} and Malm snap-shipped all in for 59,000. Wolansky called and Crain did the same. Both players checked down the {Q-Diamonds} turn and {A-Clubs} river.

Wolansky showed {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} but was bested by Crain's {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}. The best hand, however, was held by Malm who had {Q-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} for two pair of queens and jacks. Malm was able to triple to about 385,000.
