Hopkins Runs Into Aces

[user153638]

James Hopkins moved all in from middle position for 259,000 only to have Feming Chan move all in over the top from late position. Chan's reraise served as an isolation bet as the rest of the field cleared out.

Showdown
Hopkins: {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}
Chan: {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}

While Hopkins was short and no doubt liked the look of his preflop picture cards, he couldn't have picked a worse time to commit his chips. The {7-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{8-Diamonds} flop mean Hopkins needed to catch runner-runner, which meant the {K-Clubs} turn gave him some hope. Unfortunately for him, the {6-Diamonds} blanked on the river and his day came to an end.

Chan is up to 786,000.
