Juan Maceiras raised under the gun to 30,000, Sheikh Al-Thani moved all in from the button for 205,000, and Maceiras thought for a while before he called with KcQs.

Al-Thani turned over AcQd, and he was a dominant favorite to double up here.

But the board came Kd8h7h5d9s, and Maceiras flopped a pair of kings to win the pot and eliminate Al-Thani in 164th place.
