Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Kimura KO's Chen

• Taso 21: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Alex Bilokur raised it up to 32,000 from middle position, and Kima Kimura three bet it to 75,000 next to act. Action folded to Tommy Chen, who moved all in from the big blind for his last 297,000. Bilokur folds quickly, and Kimura tanked for about a minute before making the call.

Kimura: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Chen: {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}

Chen held the slight edge in a classic coin flip situation, but that all changed when the flop came down {4-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}. Kimura now had the lead with a pair of kings, and Chen was looking for a jack. The turn brought the {9-Hearts}, which gave Chen flush draw outs in addition to the jack. The river was red, but it was the {4-Diamonds}, giving Kimura the knockout, and upping her stack to 819,000.
