Timothy Adams

Timothy Adams raised to 48,000 on the button and Brendon Rubie three-bet to 112,000 from the small blind. James Schaaf folded his big blind and Adams four-bet to 243,000. Rubie asked for a count of what Adams had behind, about 1.4 million, and called.

The flop fell     and Rubie checked it to Adams who bet 201,000. Rubie put together chips for a raise, and a hefty raise it was. He made it 976,000 to go, sending Adams into the tank about two minutes before he re-raised all in for 1,552,000 total. Rubie shrugged and called, turning over    for a flush draw and straight draw.

Adams tabled    for ace high and was ahead, but had plenty of outs to fade. He did just that as the   turn and   river gave him the pot with ace high.

"He's the sickest," said Tristan Wade, on the rail to sweat his friend. "Coin it. Sickest."
