Feels Like Queens

Justin Bonomo

Action folded around to Iulian Ruxandescu in the small blind and he asked for a count of Justin Bonomo in the big. "I haven't looked yet, but it feels like queens," Bonomo said of his hand before telling Ruxandescu he had approximately 160,000.

Ruxandescu then moved all in, and Bonomo looked at his cards before quickly calling.

Bonomo: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Ruxandescu: {A-}{6-}

While it wasn't queens, Bonomo had woke up with an even more powerful hand. The {J-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} flop paired Ruxandescu, but he needed more help if he hoped to eliminated a tough competitor. The {5-Spades} was useless, and so was the {2-Diamonds}, which meant Bonomo received a much-needed double.
