AndrewPieper • Level 20: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Karthik Ramakrishnan opened to 40,000 from early position with Dien Le defending the big blind.

The flop fell {9-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades} and Le checked to Ramakrishnan who bet the pot for 90,000. Le then check-raised for the last 53,000 of Ramakrishnan's stack sending him into the tank. After a couple minutes of deliberation, Le called showing {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{8-Spades} for kings and needed help against Le's {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Hearts} to remain alive. The turn {J-Hearts} and river {2-Diamonds} sealed Ramakrishan's fate as Le's stack grows to one of the larger ones in the room.
