After a flop of KsQdJc, Juan Endara bet 35,000 from UTG+1, and Nicholas Verderamo called from the button.

The turn card was the Ad, Endara bet 20,000, and Verderamo called.

The river card paired the board with the Ks, Endara bet 35,000, and Verderamo moved all in for 409,000.

Endara thought for a while and asked “Will you show if I fold?”

Verderamo seemed reluctant, but after a few moments said, “Alright, alright.”

Endara folded, showing one card — the As for two pair, aces and kings.

As he took the pot, Verderamo turned over Qh9h, for a lower two pair, kings and queens.
