"Yyyyyyyyessssss!": Oyster King Finds a Magical Turn to Double

Level 7 : 600/1,200, 1,200 ante

We got to the action as a massive pot was brewing over on Table 58. In a four-bet pot with about 75,000 in the middle, on a board reading {10-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}, Yannick Harvey led out for 28,000 from the small blind. Armand 'Oyster King' King was on the button and re-raised to 80,900. Harvey thought for a moment and moved all-in. King had about 73,000 behind, and after a minute of reflection he called.

Armand King: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Yannick Harvey: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

King was way behind and admitted he knew it but couldn't fold.

The turn was the {q-Diamonds} and King yelled out, "Yyyyyesssss!" as he turned a set of queens. The river was the {2-Spades} and King held to win a massive pot worth over 270 big blinds. "I knew I was behind, but you have to hit those sometimes" said an enthused King.

Alyssa MacDonald was at the table and comforted a visibly disappointed Harvey. "I know it sucks, but you still have a lot of chips to play with. Just don't run bad, that's all." Sage words of encouragement and advice from the World Cup of Cards champion!
