Alex Kimpel

Alex Kimpel (yesterday’s Flight G chip leader) moved all in from early position for 375,000, and the player in the cutoff called with KsKc.

Kimpel turned over Kh10h, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Kd9h3h2dQh — the cutoff flopped a set of kings, but Kimpel rivered a heart flush to win the pot and double up in chips.
