River Revives Romeo

Shamus • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Romeo Robert

The blue-hoodied Belgian Robert Romeo open-raised all in from the cutoff seat for 495,000, and after getting a count the cowboy-hat wearing Glen Cymbaluk of Canada called from the button. The blinds stepped aside, Romeo revealed his {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}, and Cymbaluk turned up {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}.

The flop came {5-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} and Romeo's jacks were still best. Then the {Q-Clubs} fell on the turn, earning an appreciative tap of the side of the table from Cymbaluk as Romeo's tourney prospects suddenly appeared grim.

The dealer burned a card and delivered the river… the {J-Hearts}! Romeo had survived with trip jacks, and play continued for the 16 remaining players.
