Event #8: $600 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack

Royal Flush for Hite

• Nível 9: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante

The action began with the player in the cutoff raising to 3,600 and Brandon Hite elected to three-bet to 12,000 next to act. The blinds quickly got out of the way and the original raiser put in a four-bet for all of the chips. Hite was the one at risk when he called off his stack of 81,900.

Brandon Hite: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Cutoff: {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}

Hite was behind the pair of kings but quickly became the favorite when the flop came {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}, giving Hite top pair of aces and a gutshot royal flush draw. The turn changed nothing as the {5-Diamonds} landed but the river {q-Hearts} gave Hite a royal flush and a massive double up.
