Wiksten Runs Into Aces

ajlamers • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Epsen Moen opened to 4,500 in early position and Matthew Ireland three-bet to 12,000 from the cutoff. Uuso Wiksten four-bet shoved all in for around 70,000 in the big blind which got Moen to fold. Ireland, however, quickly called and the cards were tabled.

Matthew Ireland: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}
Uuso Wiksten: {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}

Not only did Ireland have the larger of the two pocket pairs, but he also had both of the suits covered. That would be important as the board ran out {k-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}{4-Spades}{j-Spades} and Ireland held the nut flush to eliminate Wiksten.
