Event #73: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em MAIN EVENT - World Championship

Hernandez Shows the Set

HillKerby • Level 2: 200-300, 300 ante

In a heads up pot with around 12,000 in the middle as of the turn, Aaron Hernandez bet 5,300 from the small blind. The board read {5-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and action was on his opponent, Kevin Patel, who was on the button.

Patel called and the river came {3-Spades}. Hernandez fired 7,500 into the middle and Patel went into the tank for over a minute before folding, flashing {a-Spades} in the process.

Hernandez went to muck his cards and upon seeing his opponent's lay down, balked at relinquishing them right away. Instead, he rechecked them himself once more and then proceeded to turn over {5-Spades}{5-Hearts} to share his flopped set with the table, affirming Patel had made the right laydown as he raked in the pot.
