Nice Life for Riess

ajlamers • Level 13: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante
Ryan Riess

Justin Young opened to 17,000 from the hijack and Anthony Zinno three-bet to 65,000 on the button. Rainer Kempe counted out his chips before shipping all in for 166,000 out of the small blind. Ryan Riess was in the big blind and asked for a count before moving all in over the top for about 220,000. Both Young and Zinno folded after messing around with each other and the remaining two hands were tabled.

Ryan Riess: {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Rainer Kempe: {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

Kempe was drawing to just three aces left in the deck. The flop fell {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and Riess took a strangle-hold on the hand with a set of queens. The {7-Spades} landed on the turn and Kempe was left drawing dead to the {6-Diamonds} on the river.

"Nice life," Sam Soverel said to Riess after the hand.
