We got to the table to see around 140,000 in the pot already. The flop was {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{K-Spades}, Russell Thomas opened to 50,000 from the button, and Carlos Mortensen shoved all in from the small blind. Thomas snap-called.

Thomas: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}
Mortensen: {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}

They both had kings but Thomas had the ace-kicker. The turn gave them the {K-Diamonds} and the river completed the board with the {7-Spades}.

Table 728 is playing three-handed at the moment.
