Thalmann’s Flush Beats Warnock’s Set

Level 12: 3,000/6,000 (6,000)
Entries: 67/279

There were two spots potentially involving jacks for George Warnock. In the first hand, Warnock opened from the cutoff before Paul High three-bet to 46,000 from the small blind. Warnock ripped it in with a four-bet jam to 158,000 and High tanked for more than five minutes.

“I got in trouble with this hand before,” shared High.

“What was it?” asked Warnock.

“Jacks,” replied High before going back into the tank again.

Eventually, the clock was called and High folded.

Shortly after, Yves Thalmann jammed for 88,000 from under the gun before Warnock three-bet shoved for nearly triple this. The rest of the table folded.

“You aren’t going to believe this,” Warnock said to High.

Yves Thalmann: AQ
George Warnock: JJ

While we will never know whether High really had jacks, we do know that Warnock certainly did. Warnock flopped a set on the 69J flop but Thalmann pulled out ahead with a flush on the 3 turn. The board didn’t pair on the 4 river for Warnock to double Thalmann.

“Unlucky,” Amanda Smith, who we mentioned is playing only her second poker tournament outside of a pub environment said to Warnock.

“Nice hand,” added Smith to Thalmann as the dealer was shuffling the cards for the next hand.

Meanwhile, Matas Budginas, Tayfun Rodoplu, Pontus Dargren, John Mooney, and Bjarke Matthiesen all recently hit the rail to leave just 67 players remaining.
