Event #8: $1,500 Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em

Kings Are Kind to Makhija

[user169806] • Level 2: 25-50, 0 ante

Amit Makhija has started fast out of the blocks here on Day 1b of the Millionaire Maker, getting dealt pocket kings in a four-bet pot will do that to a man.

From what we could gather, Makhija's now-busted opponent opened with a raise, Makhija three-bet with {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} and his opponent four-bet jammed all-in for 2,600. Makhija looked pained in his decision making but decided kings were too strong to lay down and he called, discovering he was ahead of the {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}.

By the river the board read {2-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{5-Spades}{J-Hearts}, Makhija's kings held and he is now one of the chip leaders early on here.
