After unknown action, Scott “The Pharaoh” Smile reraised from middle position to 10,500, and the player in the big blind moved all in for 31,100.

Smile called with QsJd, and the big blind turned over Ac10s.

The board came KcKdQd3hKh, and Smile paired his queen on the flop and won the pot with a full house, kings full of queens, to eliminate his opponent.

Scott Smile  –  220,000  (183 bb)
