When Kings do NOT Hold

James Phamsopha started today as chipleader with 84 left. We're down to 44 - 8 from the money - and James is now back to his start-of-day stack ... with quite a flop to get there.

Jake Rosenstiel and Phamsopha go to the flop and see it come out K-3-3. The flop is checked, there's a bet and a call on the turn, and on the river (turn/river are blanks) both players get their chips in the middle, Rosenstiel having Phamsopha covered by quite a bit.

Rosenstiel - KK for a flopped top set
Phamsopha ... oh yeah ... he flopped quads with his 33

I look back and Jake signals with thumb and forefinger to simulate a gun in his mouth for the beat he just took, then he laughs and recaps the story for me.

Level - 19
Blinds - 4k/8k and hour-long-levels now
Antes - 1k
Players Left - 44
