Diego "diessanser" Sanchez had nearly 60 percent of the chips when a three-handed deal was made. They left $30,000 in play and Sanchez stacked it after winning the race.

"Pokerger1337" put the chips in with {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} against Sanchez's {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}. The {k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} board paired Sanchez and did nothing for "Pokerger1337."
