Payne Gets Some Back

HillKerby • Level 31: 100,000-200,000, 100,000 ante

Korey Payne raised to 500,000 on the button and Salim Admon defended his big blind. The flop dropped {k-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} and Admon check-raised a continuation-bet of 500,000 from Payne, making it 1.5 million. Payne called.

The turn came {a-Diamonds} and Admon bet another 900,000. Payne peeled and the river came {6-Spades} where action checked through to showdown.

"Queen high," announced Admon. Payne turned over {k-Spades}{3-Diamonds} for a pair of kings and Admon sent his cards to the muck.
