Russell Waggoner drags a huge pot

Whilst writing the previous post about Bill Isbell, Bill McKown gave us a yell to come and check out a hand. And it was crazy.

It was impossible to tell the preflop betting action but the carnage was visible. There were four players all in, the cards were tabled, and the dealer was working out the various side pots. Russell Waggoner had the biggest stack and the biggest hand.

His QdQh was ahead of TdTs and 5s5h and 2h2d. Most of the players favored the ducks but since Marvin “Duckman” Karlins was not around, the queens held on the Ac8d7dAs7h board. The fives and deuces were playing the board and the queens topped them all to give Waggoner the scoop, a triple knockout, and 70,000 before the first break.

Bill Isbell had the fives and will have to try again.
