Can @rob_yong hit the river to win one of the year's biggest #PokerAfterDark pots? 😰😱
Alex Keating had A-Q on 5-Q-4 flop and he was ahead of Rob Yong who had only 7-4. The deuce of clubs appeared on the turn and Yong hit a flush draw, and Keating got a gutshot in addition to the top pair.
Alex thought a little and went all-in. Rob Young had to make a very difficult decision, so he asked for a time bank. After the time bank, Young made a call and 4 appeared on the river. It gave Rob the trips and victory.
