Matt Keikoan Painfully Cracks Aces

This was a battle of big stacks, as both players started the hand with more than 150,000.

After a flop of {J-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, Matt Keikoan checks, the player in the cutoff bets 9,000, and Keikoan calls. The turn card is the {9-Diamonds}, Keikoan checks, his opponent bets 18,000, and Keikoan calls. The river card is the {Q-Diamonds}, Keikoan bets 30,000, and his opponent goes into the tank for more than a minute. He eventually calls.

Keikoan shows {Q-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for a busted flush draw that hit a runner-runner two pair. His opponent is shocked, and flips over his losing {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}.

Keikoan takes down a nice pot, increasing his stack to about 240,000.
