Back and Forth Between Yu and Bicknell

Level 51 : 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

Another big pot emerged between Kristen Bicknell and Ben Yu and the latter bet the {a-Spades}{6-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} river for 175,000 into more than 250,000. Bicknell reluctantly called and Yu mucked to forfeit the pot.

Then, the flop showed {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and Bicknell bet 25,000, Yu called. The {j-Spades} turn was checked and Bicknell led the {3-Clubs} river for 82,000. Yu gave it some consideration and called to see Bicknell turn over {6-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. Yu had {k-Hearts}{4-Hearts} for a pair of kings and scooped the pot.
