The Worst Hand Wins It All

Gerd Mitteregger
Out with the best hand in a three-way-all-in: Gerd Mitteregger

We just witnessed a three-way-all-in on table 36. Three players with a somewhat shortish stacks found themselves all-in with the following hands

  • Jiri Horacek: 8-7
  • David Taborsky: A-T
  • Gerd Mitteregger: A-J

Mitteregger was the shortest stack and at risk of elimination with the best hand, and Jiri Horacek was very confident to spike something even before the flop was dealt. The dealer obliged and dealt a board of K-Q-8-9-6. The single pair for Horacek was enough to take down the pot and Mitteregger was sent home.
