Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

A Triple for Holden


2011 November Niner Sam Holden just scored a big triple up to continue his second straight deep Main Event run.

The hand began with Holden shoving all in for 775,000 from the hijack seat, then Andrew Flaherty called from the button. Jean Malherbe then reraised all in from the big blind, and after thinking for a while Flaherty let his hand go.

Holden turned over {4-Spades}{4-Clubs} and Malherbe {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}, and at the sight of those hands Flaherty buried his head in his hands as though he'd wished he'd stayed in the hand.

The community cards came {3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts} to give Holden a straight, so perhaps Flaherty was better off not to have called, although he now sits on a short stack.
