Courtesy of Allen Kessler who came to our table to let us know about some crazy action happening on his table, we were able to see a four-way all-in situation develop following a flop of .
Eric Rodawig had bet 1,200, Brian Hastings made it 5,450 to go, then Barry Werthman moved all in. On top of that, Joseph Ebanks also put all his chips in and Rodawig was baffled by the situation in which he found himself. Eventually, he said, "Okay, I'm all in," and Hastings placed in his remaining hundreds in the middle as well. No less than 16 hole cards were turned up.
"I flopped the nuts," Werthman said while the other players all had an ace-deuce plus a spade draw in their respective hands:
The turn filled the low draw, then the river sealed the massive high-half of the pot for Werthman.
It took about five minutes to figure out all the logistics of side pots and chops, but the players helped the dealer to make everything right. Werthman walked away from the crazy all-in confrontation as the biggest beneficiary.
