Ami Barer raised to 2,000 from the cutoff and the button reraised to 4,500. Marc-Etienne McLaughlin four-bet to 14,500 from the big blind and Barer folded. The small blind then moved all-in and McLaughlin called.
"Interesting," said Selbst when the hole cards were revealed.
The big blind's pocket threes held until the river of the board, the ace on the river winning the pot for McLaughlin and catapulting him to 100,000 chips.
