A player in middle position raises to 3,700 and Josh Hergott makes it 7,000 in late position. The initial raiser goes all in, putting Hergott at risk for his stack of 45,600 total. After a long pause, Hergott commits the chips.
Hergott has pocket kings and is in good shape against his opponents’ pocket eights. The flop is Kd Qc 7s, giving Hergott top set. The 5s turn and 5h river can’t help his opponent and Hergott doubles up to 95,000 just before the dinner break.
