Level 3:  200/400 with a 400 ante

Mike Dentale

With the board showing KcQc9c7h on the turn, the player in the hijack checked, Mike Dentale bet 4,000, and the hijack check-raised all in for 18,000.

Dentale tanked for a while before he called with Jh10s for a king-high straight, and his opponent turned over Kd10c for a pair of kings with a club flush draw and a gutshot straight draw.

The river card was the 4s, and Dentale won the pot with his straight to eliminate his opponent.
