In the final hand of the night, Mark Kroon opened to 1,125 from under the gun. He was called by three players, including Ylon Schwartz. The flop came down {5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, and Kroon threw out a continuation bet of 2,400. Schwartz raised it up to 5,200, which was enough to see the other two players muck their hands. Kroon called, as the {6-Hearts} fell on the turn. Kroon bet out 13,500 and was called. The {4-Diamonds} completed the board, and Kroon bet out 12,125. Schwartz tanked for a few minutes, before moving all in for over 30,000, which was snap called.

“Boom!” yelled Kroon, tabling his {a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}, before jumping up from his chair. “Boom!” he repeated. Kroon was so excited; he could hardly hold it in.

“You don’t have to be such a d*** about it,” said Schwartz, after the completion of the hand.

“I’m just excited to win a hand,” replied Kroon.
