Brian Trieflagg opened to 12,000 from under the gun, Allauddin Khan called in the cutoff, and Wayne Daley called on the button. Dani Mae moved all in from the small blind for 63,000 and the big blind folded.
Trieglaff moved all in over the top to get folds from Khan and Daley.
“You have it?” Trieglaff asked.
“Yep,” was Mae’s response.
Mae was ahead for her needed double and had no problems with the board.
“That’s payback,” Mae joke/needled Trieglaff. The two of them sparred several times late yesterday to drop Mae from a huge lead to short stack.
