Rex Clinkscales raised to 15,000 from under the gun. Ismael Bojang raised to 55,000. Eldert Soer then announced pot from the small blind to 186,000. Clinkscales tank-folded before Bojang called.

"I have the nuts," he said, showing {a-Spades}{2-Spades}{a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}. Soer showed {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{9-Hearts}.

"What did you have?" exclaimed tablemate Dario Alioto at Clinkscales. The flop came {k-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{9-Clubs} and Clinkscales pointed at the King to give Alioto a hint.

The turn was the {3-Diamonds} and the river the {10-Diamonds} meaning there was no low, and each player's Aces took half of the pot.
