Six-Time Ring Winner Bubbles

Maxwell Young

Action folded to Max "Mawkswell" Young who raised to 13,434 from late position and Upeshka "gomezhamburg" De Silva three-bet to 38,880 from the button.

Action folded back around to Young who jammed for 234,068 and De Silva snap-called.

Max "Mawkswell" Young:   
Upeshka "gomezhamburg" De Silva:   

Young was behind and nothing changed after the     flop.

The   turn gave Young more outs with the nut flush draw as any diamond or ace would win him the hand.

Unfortunately for Young, a third king fell on the river   improving De Silva's hand to a full house and the six-time ring winner exited the tournament on the money bubble.
