Event #31: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed

Three Straight All-ins for Craig Varnell

GeoffFisk • Level 2: 100-200, 200 ante

Craig Varnell found himself on the shortest of stacks after losing an all in with pocket queens, to an opponent with pocket aces. The opponent hit the set of aces to seal the deal, and the lost pot left Varnell just hanging on for his tournament life.

On the next hand, Varnell pushed the last of his stack and stole the blinds, and on the hand after that Varnell went all in once again and got a call.

Craig Varnell: {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

Things looked bleak for Varnell preflop, but the river proved favorable on a {j-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Spades} runout.
