Triple Up For Tapscott


Herbert Tapscott just lost a pot against Gavin Griffin knocking him all the way down to just 75,000 chips, but shortly thereafter he found a spot to triple up. In the first hand Griffin raised to 80,000 from the cutoff and Tapscott called from the big blind.

The flop came down {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{2-Spades} and both players checked. On the turn, the {K-Diamonds}, both players checked again. The river was the {7-Spades} and Tapscott double checked his cards before betting 80,000. Griffin called and Tapscott mucked his hand immediately. Griffin had to show and tabled {2-}{5-}{5-}{6-} for a pair of fives and a low.

Two hands later Tapscott was on the button and called all-in when John Racener had raised it up to 80,000. Rasmussen called as well and on a {3-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} the hand got checked out. Racener showed {2-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Spades}{3-Hearts} and with two pair he took the small side pot from Rasmussen. Tapscott showed {A-Hearts}{2-Spades}{J-Spades}{9-Clubs} for the wheel and he scooped to main pot in order to stay alive in this tournament.
