Two-Outer Saves Tamayo

[user38338] • Nivå 13: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

A huge three-way preflop all-in hand just happened over at Table 383 in the Amazon Room.

By the time the betting had completed before the flop, a short-stacked player was all in for his last 35,000 or so with {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}, Jonathan Tamayo was also all in for 177,500 with {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}, and Bryce Yockey was there as well having both of his opponents covered and holding {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}.

The dealer burned a card and spread the flop {6-Spades}{3-Clubs}{4-Spades}, giving the short-stacked player a set and causing him to yell "Hold!" repeatedly while the remaining community cards were delivered.

The turn brought the {8-Clubs}, and the set of fours were still best, with Yockey still standing to earn a big side pot and knock out Tamayo. Then came the river… the {J-Diamonds}! A better set for Tamayo! The short-stacked player let out a groan before departing, and Yockey also expressed frustration at seeing both of his opponents hit sets while missing out on a huge pot.

Tamayo, meanwhile, sat back in his chair with his baseball cap over his face, no doubt hiding a huge expression of relief at having his tourney life saved by that river two-outer.
