gqzdaddy • Level 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Knut Berntsen opened to 2,400 from early position and James Whalen moved all in for 11,900 from the button. Berntsen made the call and tabled {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}. He was behind the {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} of Whalen and the flop of {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}{9-Clubs} was solid for Whalen.

The board completed {8-Spades} and then {a-Hearts}, and Whalen stayed alive.
