Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Running Scared

Foster Hays started off the action with a raise to 27,000. Eddie Blumenthal on the button called, as did Scott Montgomery in the big blind. With a {J-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} board exposed Montgomery lead off with a check, and Hays continued for 54,000. A silent Blumenthal put in the call, and an even quieter Montgomery did the same.

The {9-Spades} on the turn allowed for all three players to knuckle the felt, and a {7-Spades} on the river saw a repeat of action with three checks. Hays announced "jacks and nines" and flipped over {j-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. The other two's cards then melted into the muck. Afterwards Hays said "that was a weird hand".
