There was 11,300 in the middle, four players in the hand, and the board showed . Jeremy Allen checked from the small blind as did his neighbor in the big blind. A player in middle position then bet 5,800, prompting the player in late position to push all in for 22,300 total. Allen called the all-in bet, then watched as the big blind reraised all in himself for significantly more.
The middle position player quickly folded, but Allen was considering calling. A count of the latest all-in shove was being conducted — it turned out to be 84,000 — but before it was completed Allen said it didn't matter and made the call.
Allen tabled for a flush draw, but was in not-so-good shape versus the big blind's (a better flush draw) and the short-stacked player's (a set of sevens). But the turn brought the and river the — Allen had lost the smaller main pot, but had won the bigger side pot (and knocked out a player) with his pair of queens.
A standing Allen readjusted his cowboy hat and exhaled after the hand. "I need to calm down after that one, know what I mean?" he said.
