After a flop of Qs9d4h, Richard Leger checked from UTG+1, the player on his left checked, and the next player bet 16,000 from middle position. Leger called, and the other player folded.

The turn card was the 6s, and both players checked.

The river card was the 7d, Leger checked, his opponent bet 31,000, and Leger quickly called. His opponent showed AcQc for a pair of queens, but Leger turned over KhKc to win the pot.

Richard Leger  –  200,000  (167 bb)
