Khoa Nguyen raised to 85,000 from middle position and action folded all the way around to Mitchell Cogert in the big blind. He decided to exercise his option with a three-bet to 250,000, Nguyen moved all in, and Cogert called off for 910,000.

Showdown
Cogert: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Nguyen: {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

Cogert was in great shape to double with his pocket kings, especially after the {4-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} flop; however, the {A-Hearts} turn gave Nguyen a pair of aces and the lead. Cogert's went from a big favorite to an extreme underdog. Needing one of the two kings, Cogert's run came to an end when the {2-Clubs} blanked on the river.
