Koral Can't Get Aces To Fold

We missed some of the preflop and flop action, but according to a player at the table, one player raised and he received three callers, including Tom Koral on the button.

The flop came down {2-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and the original raiser led out with a bet. Action folded around to Koral on the button and he poppep it up with a reraise. The original raiser called and the two players took the the {10-Clubs} on the turn. On the turn the original raiser led out with another bet, this time for 12,000. With the action back on Koral he reraised to 30,000. That drew a quick call from his opponent creating a pot of just about 90,000. The river was the {10-Spades} and this time both players slowed down with a check.

The original raiser showed {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs} and that was enough to make Koral muck his hand, erasing most of the work that he had done to build his stack today.
