Curtis King raised under the gun to 20,000, the cutoff called, and Talesh Patel reraised from the small blind to 60,000. King reraised to 125,000, and Patel five-bet all in for 208,000.

King called with JsJc, but Patel turned over AhAd. Patel needed his aces to hold to stay alive.

The board came QdQh6h2sAs, and Patel lead the entire way, winning the pot with a full house, aces full of queens, to double up in chips.
