We caught up with the action on a completed board reading with over 50,000 in the pot already. Alex Cordero was in the small blind against one other player in early position. Cordero had already moved all in for 111,000 and his opponent fell hard into the tank.
After a few minutes, Cordero's opponent announced, "Call," to put himself at risk. Cordero tabled for the nut straight. His opponent stood stunned at what he saw and squeezed his hand into a fist - crushing his cards. When he let go, two crumpled kings lay in front of him for an overpair.
Cordero scooped the enormous pot and is now up to approximately 320,000.
