Rainer Kempe

Rainer Kempe raised to 700 on the button and Benjamin Yu three-bet to 3,500. Kempe called and the two players saw a flop of {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. Yu led out for 2,300 and Kempe stuck around to see the {7-Clubs} on the turn.

Yu tossed in another bet of 10,000 and Kempe still called. The {k-Spades} paired the board on the river and Yu finally shut down with a check. Kempe checked it back and Yu turned over {q-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for a missed flush draw. Kempe tabled {a-Diamonds}{8-Spades} for two pair and collected the first pot of their match.
