Kevin Grabel raises to 1,600 and Mike Shaughnessy calls. The player in the big blind reraises to 2,800 and both Grabel and Shaughnessy call.
They go three handed to the 7♦️A♦️J♠️ flop and the big blind continues with a bet of 3,000. Grabel gets out of the way and Shaughnessy makes the call. They go heads up to the A♣️ turn and the big blind bets 6,000.
Shaughnessy again calls and the river is the 2♦️. The big blind fires a third bullet with a bet of 15,000 and Shaughnessy quickly calls. His opponent turns over Q♠️8♠️ for just queen high and Shaughnessy shows A♥️10♦️ for trip aces to take the pot.
