Darrick Arreola went all in from the small blind against Max Kingstone in the big blind. Kingstone was down to just a few big blinds and had about half his stack in with the big blind and ante. Both players said they hadn't bothered looking at their cards, as Kingstone was too short to fold and Arreola was after another scalp.
Darrick Arreola: 6♦8♦
Max Kingstone: 5♥3♥
Both players happened to wake up with suited connectors but when the board ran out J♦7♠Q♣9♣4♦ Arreola was ecstatic to tell his rail that he had won with eight high, a rather unlikely feat.
Kingstone played with a tremendous amount of patience and precision but won't be taking home the gold today.
