Chip Me Up!

Founder of ChipMeUp Rayan Nathan has just given another player his cue to leave as we tick over into 1am here in the Amazon Room.

From under the gun, an opponent shoved for 22,000 and the action folded around to Nathan on the button, who re-raised all-in for 188,000. The blinds got out of the way and then the players went to showdown:

UTG: {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}
Nathan: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}

The flop of {Q-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Spades} was golden for Nathan, as it gave him top set. The {J-Hearts} on the turn changed nothing, so needing one of the two kings left in the deck, the opponent was felted after the dealer peeled of the {9-Hearts} on the river.
