Ryan Hughes opened the action with a raise to 7,000 from the cutoff. He was called by the player on the button. Both blinds folded so the two went heads-up to the flop.

The flop came down {9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} and both players checked to see the {10-Hearts} on the turn. Hughes fired out a bet of 13,000 and the player on the button called.

The river was the {5-Diamonds} and both players checked.

"King high," the player on the button announced.

Hughes reluctantly shook his head and turned up his {Q-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} for a rivered pair of fives. His opponent turned up {K-}{Q-} which was no good and Hughes was able to take down the small pot.
