After a flop of Ad10h6h with about 7,500 already in the pot, Kitty Kuo bet 3,000 from UTG+1, and Jake Ferro called from middle position.

The turn card was the 2h, Kuo bet 8,000, and Ferro called.

The river card was the 5h, putting four hearts on the board, and Kuo bet 24,500. Ferro thought for a bit before he called, and Kuo turned over AhKs for a flopped pair of aces that rivered an ace-high flush.

Ferro mucked, and Kuo won the pot.

Kitty Kuo  –  130,000  (130 bb)
Jake Ferro  –  129,000  (129 bb)
