Yves Kupfermunz raised to 15,000 and Robert Paddock called on the cutoff. One seat over, Jason Somerville moved all in for 25,000 and the blinds folded, both other active opponents called. On the flop, the fireworks started. Kupfermunz potted for 84,000 and after some consideration and getting the count for the chips behind (53,000), Paddock announced all in. "Alright," Kuofermunz said and pushed the stack forward.
Three way showdown:
The turn gave Paddock the lead with a straight and the river meant that we would lose two players. Somerville and Kupfermunz both take home $7,553.
Action folded to Robert Paddock in the small blind, and he raised to 13,000. Jason Somerville potted to 39,000, and Paddock made the call. After the flop, Paddock pushed all in for about 40,000, and Somerville called.
"I have aces," Somerville said.
"I have live cards," Paddock replied.
The turn gave Paddock a straight, and Somerville was drawing dead.
Greg Merson limped from under the gun and so did Brandon Shack-Harris one seat over. Loren Klein limped the button and John O'Shea filled up in the small blind before Matthew Ryan raised it up to 36,000. Only Merson called but then folded when Ryan fired 90,000 on the flop. Peter Charalambous suggested that Ryan should have shown kings.
In the very last hand of the third table once we got down to 18 players and before the redraw was completed, the flop was already completed. Robert Paddock made it 26,000 to go and sent Steve Billirakis into the think tank. He eventually grabbed some chips for the call, pondered about his decision once again and then did call. Paddock knocked on the table and said "You got it."
The bluff attempt was caught and Billirakis turned over as winning hand.
