Feature Table B

The action was caught on the {4-Hearts}{j-Spades}{6-Hearts} flop with 165,000 in the middle.

Eshaan Bhalla had checked from the big blind for Martin Finger to bet 100,000 from the middle position. Bhalla shoved and Finger called for the 370,000 he had behind.

Martin Finger: {q-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Eshaan Bhalla: {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

They had both flopped top pair but Bhalla was ahead with the king-kicker.

The rest of the board was completed with the {8-Spades} on the turn and the {a-Clubs} on the river to signal the end of Finger's run in the main event.

Bhalla pushed his stack forward, grabbed his backpack (to the confusion of his table mates), and then looked over confused too.

"I thought he had queens!" and then celebrated a bit with some delay.
