Kim Runs Into a Set of Aces


An early-position player limped and was followed by Kelly Kim in middle position. The small blind came along for the ride and Prahlad Friedman checked his option in the big. When the flop fell {J-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}, action checked to the early-position player and he bet 500, which Kim quickly raised to 1,300.

Both blinds folded, EP made it 3,500, and Kim just called behind. Both players then checked the {A-Spades} turn, leading to the {9-Spades} river. EP led out for 5,000 and Kim made the call after a moment's thought; however, the former November Niner mucked when EP rolled over {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds} for a turned set.
