Event #53: $800 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack

Taleb Flops the World, Cracks Aces and Kings

• Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante

Three-way all in action after Ahmed Taleb open-jammed for 1,635,000 from late position, action folded to Joao Barrosovalli who three-bet jammed over the top from the small blind and Patrick Shepherd moved all his chips in the middle from the small blind.

Ahmed Taleb {a-Spades}{3-Clubs}
Joao Barrosovalli: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}
Patrick Shepherd: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

Taleb was way behind his opponents until the flop came {j-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and he flopped trip threes.

The turn brought the {10-Hearts} and Taleb needed to dodge an ace or a king to triple up.

The {4-Spades} fell on the river and Taleb cracked aces and kings sending Shepherd out the door.
