The Monkey Climbs Back


Tomas Samol opened with a raise to 25,000 from the hijack seat, and A.P. Phahurat called from one seat over. Then Will "The Monkey" Souther reraised all in from the button for 189,000 total. The blinds and Samol got out, and Phahurat took about a half-minute before tossing out the calling chips.

Phahurat: {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}
Souther: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}

Souther sat up straight in his seat as if bracing himself for the flop. The dealer burned a card and spread the first three — {4-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}. "Yeah, Monkey!" said one of Souther's supporters on the rail, and he stood up from his chair. The turn then brought the {A-Clubs}.

"Just quads? All right," said Souther, using understatement, then sat back down as the meaningless {6-Diamonds} came on the river.
