Koon and Astedt Keep Locking Horns

Blinds 40,000/80,000

Table captain Niklas Astedt opened to 176,000 and Jason Koon jumped in from the cutoff. Everyone else folded and the action-packed {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{9-Clubs} flop landed on the board.

Action checked to Koon, he bet 176,000 and Astedt check-called. The {j-Diamonds} turn saw both players check through to the {8-Clubs} river where Koon bet 480,000.

Astedt check-called and Koon tabled {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} for the nut flush. It was not enough though, when Astedt turned over {j-Spades}{9-Spades} for a boat to take down the large pot.
