Craig Koch Fades the Deck to Have Aces Hold Up

Harvey Bundy raised to 33,000 from the hijack and a player holding the button reraised all-in for 170,000. Craig Koch snap-called and tabled his {A-Spades}{A-Hearts} with authority. Bundy quickly got out of the way and the all-in player showed down his {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} in disappointment.

When the flop came {3-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} his hopes were lifted slightly, as he could now win by hitting a heart to complete his flush. The {Q-Spades} on the turn provided even more outs and Koch found himself dodging kings, queens and hearts if his aces were to hold up.

River: {A-Clubs}

Despite the numerous outs available to the all-in player, the river hit Koch's hand and gave him the win. He now sits with a stack of 435,000, good for double the chip average.
