Yu Gets A Double and a KO

[user217945] • Nivå 5: 200-400, 50 ante
Ben Yu in and earlier WSOP event.

We didn't catch the preflop action which ended up with Ben Yu in a three-way all in, but lucky for us Yu was able to relay it.

Yu opened with a raise to 1,000. A few seats over, another player reraised all in for just about 4,000 total. A few seats over from him another player reraised to 10,000. Action folded back to Ben Yu who jammed all in for just about 21,000. The player who reraised to 10,000 called and the three went to a show down, and that's where we caught the action.

Yu: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Player 1: {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}
Player 2: {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}

The flop was absolute gin for Yu when it came down {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. He had flopped the nut straight and no one else in the hand even held a heart for the flush. The board completed with a {Q-Diamonds} and an {8-Diamonds} allowing Yu to catch the knockout, and the double up at the same time pushing him to just about 50,000 chips.
