Robin Keston's Aces Cracked

From the Sportsman --

Well, the title kind of gives up any element of surprise, so you know what he had when he re-raised all in preflop (over the top of button John Tabatabai). It was about another 8k to call, in any case it was most of Tabatabai's stack, and he did think about it for a while before just throwing in the call and turning over his hand: {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}

The flop: {10-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Turn: {K-Clubs} Now the other players at the table were leaning in...
River: {J-Clubs}

A cracked Keston headed stiffly from the table (as you would). Meanwhile, Neil Channing, who hasn't to my knowledge played any hands today, is nevertheless a gold mine of interesting information about other players. Robin Keston once infamously folded Kings preflop in an odd hand in the Poker Million (to do with a read on someone for huge strength due to their enormous last-longer side bet) but has played today in a solid style, going out with the most legitimate of legitimate hands, unluckily.

Meanwhile John Tabatabai rides up the rollercoaster lift before heading for another dive/loop-the-loop combo with his stack.
