AA vs. KK Again for Robinson Spells Elimination for Le

Shamus • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

We were just reporting a hand a short while ago in which Nelson Robinson picked up pocket aces, then lost a big pot versus Frank Sinopoli who had pocket kings and caught a king on the river. Well, Robinson had his chance to try his luck again with hold'em's premium hand.

In this one Hoi Le opened from middle position for 95,000, Ahtoh Makilevskyi called from late position, then Robinson reraised to 300,000 from the big blind. Le then made it 900,000 to go, forcing a fold from Makilevskyi. Robinson shoved all in, and Le called, putting himself all in for 2.15 million total.

Robinson: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}
Le: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

Aces versus kings again! And this time things worked out better for Robinson, as the board went {Q-Spades}{A-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{3-Clubs}, sending Le to the rail and pushing Robinson's stack up to 4.55 million.
