There was four-way action on a flop of {4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} with a player from middle position all in. Action was on the cutoff, who had a bet of 3,000 in front of him already. He folded, putting action onto Roger Teska on the button who had a bet of 15,000 already out. He called all in for less than the original shove to put action on the small blind, who was the final player in the hand. The small blind asked for a count and ultimately made the call.

Small Blind: {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Middle Position: {a-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Roger Teska: {5-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Clubs}

Teska was in the lead with a set of threes but both of his opponents had outs to hit straights and/or low hands. He was in shock, however, that not a single player had a flush draw.

The board ran out in his favor, {9-Hearts}{q-Clubs} and he earned the triple up. The small blind took down a small side pot with queens and nines while the player from middle position became one of only a few casualties in the tournament thus far.
