“Ship it to the Worm!”

  • Big Stax XXVI 1500 2:50 PM
  • Level 24 (15000/30000/30000)
  • Players Remaining: 6

Joe “Worm” Palma shoved all in pre with his remaining 385k stack, and quickly called by Thai Ha holding K♦K♠ vs Worm’s K♣Q♥

Flop:7♥9♣Q♦ revealing the Q right in the window

Turn: 10♥ Worm yells for the J (which would give him a straight)

River: Q♣ which Worm is just as happy with exclaiming “Ship it to the Worm!” Worm with the ‘bookmarked’ Q’s stays alive only to wake up to pocket A’s and be 3bet pre vs the AK of David DeNoon.  Worm holds up for another double up, and leaving a very crippled DeNoon with less than 200k remaining.
