Event #11: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Tsukuda's Queens Get Paid

• Level 4: 200-400, 400 ante

Japan's Shun Tsukuda was in a building pot of 39,500 with his opponent on a board that read {10-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}. After a bet and call was collected into the pot, the river came the {5-Clubs}.

Tsukuda was first to act from the small blind and thought for a few moments before shoving his remaining 25,000 all-in, which covered his opponent who made a fairly quick call.

Tsukuda hesitated a bit and turned over the {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}, which bested the {j-Spades}{j-Clubs} of his opponent. Tsukuda collected the large pot with a smile on his face
