Framingham player Dave Shankman had a tough decision to make.
Sitting in the small blind, he faced one all-in (pre-flop for 24K) and 2 other players behind him.
Flop is 7♠ 7♦ J♠. Shankman checks, “Highjack” player now moves all-in for 40k. Button mucks. Shankman now tanks for about 2 minutes. He knows that if he calls and is wrong, his stack will be extremely low. He makes the call and shows Q♠ Q♥ and takes a breath seeing that no one had kings/aces or even a seven. They hold and knocks out one.
Shankman is currently at 210,000
