Hamrick Forced To Fold River


Dean Hamrick opened to 320,000 from the button and Thomas O'Neal made the call to see a {10-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{6-Spades} flop fall and checks follow from both players.

When the turn landed the {K-Hearts}, O'Neal checked and Hamrick fired out 340,000 only to have O'Neal check-raise all in for 1,000,000.

Hamrick made the call and when the river landed the {8-Diamonds}, O'Neal moved all in to put Hamrick to a decision for roughly his last 3,300,000 in chips.

Deliberating for nearly three minutes, Hamrick eventually found a fold as he saw the pot pushed to O'Neal to send him to over 7,800,000 in chips.

Hold It!


Thomas O'Neal limped from the button and Dean Hamrick announced that he was all in.

Hamrick's rail jumped out of their seats and lurched toward the table. The Tournament Director said "Woah Woah Woah," holding the rail back. "Dean's all in, but Tom hasn't called yet." The rail took their seats and O'Neal folded.

Chop It Up!


Dean Hamrick opened for yet another 320,000 min-raise and Thomas O'Neal moved all in yet again.

After deliberating for nearly ninety seconds, Hamrick made the call for his last 3,900,000 and we were off to a showdown.

Hamrick: {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}
O'Neal: {A-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

The flop of {4-Spades}{K-Clubs}{10-Spades} kept O'Neal in the lead, but when the {A-Spades} landed on the turn it gave Hamrick plenty of outs for a chop.

Fortunately for him the river fell the {4-Clubs} to see Hamrick remain alive as the pot was chopped up.
