Kim is Smokin'

Level 2 : 100-200, 0 ante

Action picked up on the turn on a board reading {5-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{q-Hearts}{8-Hearts} in a three-way pot with about 2,000 in the middle.

Stephen Kim, first to act, bet 5,300, which was met with an all-in shove for 19,200 from the player in the next seat over. The player on the button and Kim both made the call.

Kim then went all in after the dealer laid the {7-Hearts} on the river, which got the button-player to muck {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds} face-up, and the two remaining players tabled their hands.

Stephen Kim: {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
All-in Player: {q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}

It had been a monster flop for all three players, but only one was good on the river, with Kim's flush taking the pot. After he eliminated the player and scooped the pot Kim said, "I can go smoke now."
