One of the Strangest Double Ups I've Ever Seen

I still can't quite believe the hand I saw that enabled Jesse Martin to double up.

Dan Abouaf raised to 56,000 from the cut-off and watched as Jesse Martin three-bet to 262,000 from the cut-off. Abouaf though for two minutes and then just called, to a few raised eyebrows from those not in the hand.

The flop fell {a-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{10-Clubs} and Abouaf moved all-in, snapped off by Martin.

As the cameras moved in to film, Martin told his opponent that he had a set. Abouaf's reply came, "Good for you."

Martin: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades} for middle set.
Abouaf: {4-Hearts}{5-Clubs} for bottom pair!

The board ran out {9-Hearts}{5-Hearts} to make Abouaf trips, but it also filled up Martin.

No one could really believe what they just saw. It's not they're playing for €1.5 million or anything.
