Another hat enthusiast, Phil Huxley, raised to 1,000 in early position, and it folded all the way around to Angus Dunnington in the big blind who went all in. After a moment or two, Huxley made the call.
Huxley: 8c 8d
Dunnington: Ts Td
Board: Ac Qd Jd Th 9c
Dunnington’s hand improved to trips on the turn, but the river runner-runner-straighted Huxley’s hand, and the pot went to him.
“Rebuy?” I asked Dunnington as he rose to leave.
“Yeah.” He shrugged. “I knocked him out in Vienna,” he added, by way of post-mortem. “Then again, I apologised for that, he didn’t apologise.”
Indeed, Huxley doesn’t look in the slightest bit sorry – he’s up to 115k after that.
