Jesse Lonis raised under the gun to 250,000, Andy Hwang called from the hijack, Ronnie Bardah called from the small blind, and Ilyas Muradi called from the big blind.

The flop came KcQs4c, and it checked to Lonis, who bet 450,000. Hwang called, and Bardah and Muradi both folded.

The turn card was the 6h, Lonis bet 725,000, and Hwang called.

The river card was the 7c, and both players checked. Hwang showed AdKs for a pair of kings, but Lonis turned over AsAh to win the pot.

Jesse Lonis  –  11,400,000  (114 bb)
