Bonus Triple-Up for Gavin-Mather and More
After a middle position raise to 30,000 by Sasha Sabbaghian, Lexy Gavin-Mather moved all in for 85,000 from the button.
Tony Ginsbourg then called in the small blind and after the big blind folded, Ginsbourg mistakenly opened his hand, the a of Diamonds, j of Diamonds, , not realizing that Sabbaghian was still in the hand.
Sabbaghian then moved all in over top for about 230,000 more and Ginsbourg folded, not thinking he could beat Sabbaghian’s shove.

As it turned out, Sabbaghian and Ginsbourg had the same hand, and there were no more jacks in the deck with Gavin-Mather holding the last two.
The board came 9 of Clubs, 8 of Hearts, 6 of Spade, 8 of Spade, 6 of Clubs, giving Mather the triple up with only one opponent to beat.
Shortly after, she was seen dragging another pot having eliminated an opponent and is now holding a healthy stack with under 50 players left in the tournament.
Tony Ginsbourg – 630,000 Lexy Gavin-Mather – 525,000 Sasha Sabbaghian – 230,000
