Vivek Shows 'Em King High

A late position player raised to 20,000, Vivek Rajkumar raised to 30,000, David Pham raised to 40,000, the LP player folded, and Rajkumar called. The flop was {A-Spades}{9-Clubs}{6-Spades}. Pham bet, Rajkumar raised, and Pham went into the tank for a long time before folding.

Vivek indeed showed king high ({K-Spades}{Q-Spades}) as he dragged the pot. Pham claimed to have folded Q-Q.
