After a flop of JxJx9x, Andy Frankenberger bet, and his opponent called. The turn card was a 5x, Frankenberger bet, and his opponent called.

The river card was a 10x, Frankenberger checked, his opponent bet, and Frankenberger called with AxAx for two pair, aces and jacks.

But his opponent turned over 10x10x to win the pot with a rivered full house, knocking Frankenberger all the way down to 34,000.
