Allen Gains Chips, Seeks Calm


There was 11,300 in the middle, four players in the hand, and the board showed {J-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}. 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 {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for a flush draw, but was in not-so-good shape versus the big blind's {A-Hearts}{4-Hearts} (a better flush draw) and the short-stacked player's {7-Clubs}{7-Spades} (a set of sevens). But the turn brought the {Q-Clubs} and river the {9-Spades} — 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.
