This hand saw Bernard Dimaala start the action with an under the gun raise. The short stack to his immediate left called and then the hijack position shipped all in.
Dimaala calls and the shortest stack calls to put his tournament life at risk also.
Dimaala shows pocket threes, the short stack shows 9? 10? off-suit, and the hijack turns over pocket queens.
The board came down J♥ 6♦ 10♣ 7♥ 5♦, holding up the queens to knock out the shortest stack (Mr ‘What-was-I-doing-in-this-pot-anyway?’) and put a dent in Dimaala.
