John Richards

Evangelos Kokkalis opened to 500,000 on the button and both John Richards and Alan Sternberg called from the blinds. The flop came {q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Hearts} and the action checked to Kokkalis who bet 900,000. Richards shoved all in for 3,525,000 which got Sternberg to fold and Kokkalis called.

Evangelos Kokkalis: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
John Ricards: {q-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}

A cooler flop saw Kokkalis make a set of queens against the two pair of Richards. The turn was the {a-Hearts} and Richards was left drawing dead to the {3-Diamonds} on the river.
