John Richards

John Richards opened for 100,000 on the cutoff, Ka Lau three-bet to 420,000, and Richards made the call.

The flop came {9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, Leu potted, and Richards made the call, putting him all in.

John Richards: {9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{7-Spades}
Ka Lau: {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}

Richards was ahead on the flop with top two pair, and improved to a straight on the {8-Diamonds} turn. The river {a-Hearts} gave Lau a set but it wasn't enough, as Richards took down the massive pot.
