Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

The Case Queen

The UTG player opened for a raise, James Anderson moved all-in from the big bind and the UTG player called. Anderson was in a dominating position with pocket kings against pocket queens, but the flop came down {Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Spades}, giving his opponent a set. The turn gave Anderson a ray of hope with the {10-Diamonds}, giving him more outs with an open-ended straight draw, and he filled it on the river with the {J-Diamonds}.

"Oh no... I folded queen-jack," offered their tablemate Alexander Kostritsyn, revealing that the queen on the flop was the last one in the deck.

Anderson is up to 505,000.
