Whoa. Talk about a wild start to Day 2c. On the very first hand over at Table 436 here in the Amazon Room, a hand arose in which players were dealt the three best pocket pairs in hold'em — and all three survived the hand!
Preflop back-and-forthing saw David Roepke pushing with , Osmin Dardon all in with , and Jesse Optekar all in as well with . Roepke had both of his opponents covered, while Dardon was the short stack.
The board then brought four clubs to give Dardon the main pot, bumping him up to about 24,000, and Optekar the side pot, giving him with about 30,000. Meanwhile, Roepke took getting his aces cracked in stride, as he was able to continue with a stack of about 35,000.
