Yamada Finds Kings

Derrick Yamada limped in from the small blind, Cary Marshall checked in the big blind, and the flop came {q-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts}. Yamada led for 65,000, Marshall raised to 165,000, and Yamada responded with a re-raise to 480,000.

Marshall chewed his bottom lip for a moment, then announced all in. Yamada snapped it off.

Marshall: {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Yamada: {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}

The turn and river were both eights - the {8-Spades} and the {8-Hearts}, and Yamada doubled.
