Kevin Matheson

After a flop of 9c5h5d, Kevin Matheson got it all in from the button for 13,800 with AhAc, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against the QhQd of the UTG player.

The turn card was the 3d, the river card was the 6s, and the aces held up for Matheson to win the pot and double up in chips.
