With the final board showing JsJc8h5s9c on the river and more than 25K already in the pot, the UTG+1 player checked, Andy Frankenberger bet 30,000 from the button, and his opponent tanked for a while before he called with 10d10c for two pair, jacks and tens.

But Frankenberger turned over 9s9h to win the pot with a rivered full house, nines full of jacks.

The UTG+1 player said, “Wow, sick. Nice hand.”

Andy Frankenberger  –  150,000  (188 bb)
