Binger Picks Up Kings

Chad_Holloway • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 500 ante

Max Lehmanski was under the gun and raised to 17,500 only to have Kim Frederiksen make it 48,000 to go from the hijack. Action folded to Michael Binger in the big blind and he slid his entire stack or 153,500 in the middle. Lehmanski folded while Frederiksen made the call:

Binger: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Frederiksen: {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Binger was way ahead but the {3-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} gave Frederiksen a flush draw. Binger survived the {J-Spades} turn and just needed to dodge a diamond or ten on the river. When the {J-Clubs} peeled off, Binger took down the pot and increased his stack to around 330,000.
