A few seconds earlier, Charles Jones on 3, holding , took out another shortstack, winning the unlikely way with a running flush to escape from two nines.
However, he then faced a more unusual decision a few hands later against another now departed opponent.
In a four way pot the action checked through. When the turn card made it . When it checked to Jones third to act, he put out an extremely small bet, just one sixth of the pot. It got through the in position player, but now seat 1 made an equally small raise to just 5500, leaving Jones about 3000 to win about 20,000. Further, 1 had only another 5500 or so behind.
The river brought what seemed like a blank , and seat one snap put in the remaining chips, which were so few he easily could have gotten them in on the turn.
Now again getting an amazing price, Jones hesitated then folded. As they discussed the hand a few minutes later, Jones interrogated his opponent.
“Must have been a set of twos!”
His opponent only silently shook his head No.
“I could smell the full house!” Charles said. “I hit the jack on the end.”
His opponent looked at him incredulously, having folded the jack getting five to one.
Maybe it was just a brilliant move, but soon it wouldn’t matter. Both players busted shortly, while Schiano is still hanging on as the reentry period winds down.
