Richard Marquez Spikes Ace on the River

A spectacular hand just took place on Table 1.

With the flop showing {2-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{3-Spades} and more than 15,000 already in the pot, Richard Marquez and another player shoved the rest of their stacks in.

Richard: {a-?}{j-?}
Opponent: {k-?}{k-?}

The {10-Hearts} on the turn did not help Richard, whose odds were already running thin.

However, he jumped and shouted for joy when the {a-Diamonds} landed on the river, giving him two-pair and doubling him up.
