Rick Simpkins

After a flop of Qs6h4h, Rick Simpkins got it all in from the cutoff for 44,000 with KdQd for a pair of queens, but he needed to improve to stay alive against his opponent’s AhAc in middle position.

The turn card was the Kc, the river card was the Jc, and Simpkins paired his king on the turn to win the pot with two pair, kings and queens, to double up in chips.
