Hawkins Triples Up, Tosoc Claims the Side Pot

[user339872] • Niveau 16: 0-0, 30,000 ante

Dominik Nitsche raised to 350,000 and Ryan Tosoc called on his left. Maurice Hawkins was next to act and shoved all in for 1,025,000. The action folded back to Nitsche who also shipped all in and Tosoc called off his last 3,025,000 chips as well.

Maurice Hawkins: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Ryan Tosoc: {q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Dominik Nitsche: {10-Clubs}{9-Spades}

The flop came {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{7-Hearts} giving Tosoc a pair of queens but Hawkins was still in the lead. The turn brought the {8-Spades} and Nitsche picked up an open-ended straight draw. The river was the {8-Diamonds} and Hawkins held on for the full triple up.

Tosoc also survived his all in to take down the side pot with his pair of queens.

It was a new event introduced into the 2018 Poker Masters competition, and the turnout proved to be worthy of the innovation. The final table for Event #4: $10,000 Short Deck Poker has been set and many familiar names will be ready to battle it out in one of the newest variations of poker.

Dominik Nitsche (4,980,000) and Andrew Robl (4,865,000) will lead the final six players when the action gets underway inside the PokerGO Studio at the Aria Resort and Casino. Nitsche overtook Robl for the lead in the latter stages of Day 1 in what was an action-packed day with plenty of all-ins. While Nitsche holds a slight chip lead and would likely be favored in a standard Texas Hold'em event, Robl appears to have the experience and the edge in the Short Deck format.
