Wiksten Runs Into Aces

Epsen Moen opened to 4,500 in early position and Matthew Ireland three-bet to 12,000 from the cutoff. Uuso Wiksten four-bet shoved all in for around 70,000 in the big blind which got Moen to fold. Ireland, however, quickly called and the cards were tabled.

Uuso Wiksten: :::qs:::qh

Not only did Ireland have the larger of the two pocket pairs, but he also had both of the suits covered. That would be important as the board ran out :::ks:::ts:::5s:::4s:::js and Ireland held the nut flush to eliminate Wiksten.
