Jamie Armstrong came out to start this hand raising to 200,000. Noah Vaillancourt in the big blind obliged and made the call and both players saw a {10-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop. Vaillancourt checked and Armstrong bet out 150,000. A call was made and both players were allowed to see the {k-Diamonds} on the turn. It was here that the two players knuckled.

A {10-Clubs} on the river saw Vaillancourt take control and bet out 365,000. A call was quickly made by Armstrong, who was in for some poor news as Vaillancourt flipped over {K-}{7-} for three of a kind kings.

Armstrong then came back over the top and made it 450,000, to which Vaillencourt responded by making it 960,000. It all came to an end though when Armstrong moved all in and Vaillencourt snap folded.
