Kings Take Down Aces

AndrewPieper • Level 7: 200-400, 0 ante

After an open to 900 from under the gun and a flat from Sasha Barrese in middle position, Renan Niehues announced "pot" to bump it to 4,450. The button four-bet jammed for his remaining stack of 4,000 with the UTG player and Barrese getting out of the way.

Niehues tabled {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} and was behind the button's {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}. That would not remain the case for long as a {K-Diamonds} was shown in the window to reveal a flop of {K-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs} putting Niehues well in the lead. The {Q-Diamonds} turn and {Q-Hearts} river then made Niehues kings full of queens, cracking his opponent's aces and sending him to the exit.

Under WSOP tournament rules, all registered players must be in their seat by the start of Level 5 or their stacks are taken out of play and their buy-in refunded. Jeff Gross's seat was still empty when the level began as he hustled into the room. After a few moments of discussion with the floor, Gross was allowed to stay in possession of his stack and play.
