We picked up a three-way pot on the turn as the board showed . There was 5,075 in the middle of the table already, and Tom Alner checked from the big blind. Alex Wice was in the big, and he put out a bet of 3,000. Narendra Banwari was under the gun (so we'll infer that he was the preflop raiser), and he came along with the call to send the decision back to the small blind. There, Alner snuck in a check-raise to 10,000 total. Wice instantly called, and Banwari took pause before calling as well.
That brought them to the river with a big pot up for grabs. Alner had 12,525 left, and he stuck them all in. Wice pounded his fist on the table and angrily mucked, huffing and puffing and staring around the room. He wasn't happy. Neither was Banwari. When the decision came to him, he too smashed a stack of chips into the felt in front of him, and he'd eventually go on to open-muck his .
"I had that beat," Wice said. Banwari didn't believe him, so he repeated, "I had top set beat." Wice must have folded a flush, then, and it reduces his stack to just 7,500.
