We arrive at the table with two players all in against William McCracken, who has both opponents covered.

William McCracken - K♦K♣
Steven Shepard - A♥Q♦
Michael Kusgen - J♠J♥

The main pot is worth around 350,000 and a side pot between McCracken and Kusgen is worth another 50,000.

The 4♠3♦3♣ flop favors McCracken, but the A♠ on the turn gives Shepard the best pair, which holds through the T♣ river.

McCracken takes the side pot and Shepard drags the main. Kusgen exits the tournament in 23rd place for $1,750.

William McCracken - 209,000
Steven Shepard - 351,000
