Matthew Honig Busts Two With His 'Boys

• Nivå 4: 150-300, 25 ante

We caught a big pot brewing between three players, and watched as two all-bets of roughly 13,500 each were quickly called by Matthew "Hanks" Honig.


Honig: {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
Opponent #1: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}
Opponent #2: {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}

With both of the all-in players holding big aces, Honig was in a highly advantageous position with his cowboys, and while the {j-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{6-Spades} brought the table a decent sweat, the turn ({6-Diamonds}) and river ({6-Hearts}) came clean to secure Honig two stacks in one fell swoop.

As we left the scene of the crime, professional player Joe Tehan jokingly asked his to improve our upcoming report by adding in the following caveat: Honig had just chipped up a few hands before by rivering Tehan out of a sizable pot.

Apparently, Honig held a dominated {9-}{7-}, as Tehan had {K-}{7-}, and the board ran out {10-}{5-}{3-}{7-}{9-} to give Honig a bit of momentum heading into his three-way dance against the two big aces.
