After a flop of AcQhJh, the player in middle position bet 75,000, Jorge Gomez raised from the cutoff to 170,000, and his opponent called.

The turn card was the Kh, his opponent checked, Gomez moved all in, and his opponent folded QdJs face up for two pair, queens and jacks.

Gomez took the pot, and put his opponent’s mind at ease when he turned over his Ks10h for an ace-high straight with an open-ended straight-flush draw (including a Royal Flush draw).

Jorge Gomez  –  1,160,000  (58 bb)
