Flight 3: Meehan Triples Up

$1,650 No Limit Hold’em WPT Championship

Level 14: 1,200/2,400/400

Three players got all their chips into the middle preflop with Roger Meehan tabling JhJs, Glen Chorny showing QdQs, and the third player having AhKs.

The flop was great for Chorny as the the dealer spread a flop of Td9d5d. Chorny was the only player with a diamond and his overpair was still best. The turn is the 8s, giving Meehan an open-ended straight draw, and the river fills Meehan’s straight as the 7c fell on the river.

Meehan was the shortest of the three stacks, as he was all in for 52,500. He triples up to just shy of 160,000.

Chorny had the other player covered and doesn’t lose too much as he picks up a side pot worth roughly 80,000. Chorny is sitting with 105,000 as the staff gets the bags together to give to the surviving players.
