Kings Good for Santos

HillKerby • Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante
Josias Santos

Nick Pupillo had opened under the gun and was facing a three-bet to 65,000 from Josias Santos, who was on his direct left. He made the call to see a flop of {7-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}, which both players checked.

The turn came {8-Diamonds} and Pupillo tapped the felt to check again with Santos following suit. The river fell {10-Clubs} and Pupillo checked a third time. Santos took about 25 seconds and then decided to check behind, taking the hand to showdown.

Pupillo tabled {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts} for a pair of fives and Santos showed {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} and won the pot with his pair of kings.
