Chance Kornuth

After a middle position raise, Chance Kornuth three-bet to 19,500 from the button and the blinds folded. His opponent moved all in, Kornuth asked for a count, and called with a similar stack.

Kornuth: QdQh
Opponent: AhKs

One of those “classic races” and Kornuth’s queens held on the JsJc8dTc6h board. The dealer counted down his stack, he was playing 208,000 and sent his opponent out while doubling his stack, thanks to the blinds and ante.

Chance Kornuth – 420,000 (168 bb)
