What're you gonna do?

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship  

William Kakon came all the way from Miami, Florida to play this event.  And he just doubled up.  He was on the button and got all-in against Edward Jordan in the big blind.  In a classic confrontation, William held pocket Aces and Edward held pocket Kings.  (Alida Veliu was in the small blind, stuck between two raisers, and said she folded AK.)

"What're you gonna do?" said Edward.  No much you can do.  The board ran dry, then delivered the case Ace on the river, just to add salt to Edward's wound.  After shipping the double to William, Edward still had some chips.  "As long as you have chips, you have hope."
