After an under-the-gun raise of 2,500 and two calls, Dirk van Luijk popped it up win a min reraise to 5,000. All three players called.

The flop came down {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} and action checked to van Luijk who bet 10,000. He drew one call before the player who was under the gun jammed all in for 59,800. Van Luijk called as did the other player who called the initial bet. The turn was the {Q-Spades} and van Luijk moved all in for the side pot, which was dry at the time. The other player folded leading van Luijk and the player who was under the gun to a showdown.

Van Luijk: {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}
Under the Gun: {J-Hearts}{10-Spades}

The under the gun player was already drawing dead so it didn't matter when the river fell the {2-Clubs}. Van Luijk collected the huge pot which put him close to the top of the pack.
