Min Zhang raised under the gun to 2,500, James Calderaro called UTG+1, another player called from middle position, and the big blind called.

The flop came Ad7s5s, the big blind checked, and Zhang bet 6,000. Calderaro called, and the other two players folded.

The turn card was the 3s, Zhang bet 20,000, and Calderaro folded. Zhang showed AsKh for a pair of aces with an ace-high flush draw as she took the pot.

Calderaro smiled and said, “Of course she had the ace of spades. Honestly, I expected her to have a set of aces.”

Min Zhang  –  235,000  (294 bb)
James Calderaro  –  43,500  (54 bb)
