Dylan Linde raised from middle position to 2,600, and Sheddy Siddiqui called from the big blind.

The flop came AhKs6d, Siddiqui checked, Linde bet 1,800, and Siddiqui called.

The turn card was the 9c, and both players checked.

The river card was the Js, and they checked again. Linde showed QhJc for a pair of jacks on the river, and Siddiqui mucked with a reaction that implied he had the best hand on the turn. Linde won the pot.

Dylan Linde  –  89,000  (74 bb)
Sheddy Siddiqui  –  24,000  (20 bb)
