Alex Keating raised from middle position to 5,000, Shawn Cunix called from the hijack, Andy Frankenberger called from the small blind, and the big blind also called.

The flop came 10c6s3s, and it checked to Keating, who bet 10,000. Cunix called, while Frankenberger and the big blind folded.

The turn card was the Ac, Keating checked, Cunix bet 16,000, and Keating thought for a bit before folding, saying, “I believe you.”

Cunix showed QhQd as he took the pot.

Shawn Cunix  –  120,000  (48 bb)
