Trip Nines for Ken Aldridge on the 2-9-9-Q-x board, all of the chips belonging to Aldridge are in the middle.

Jesse Yaginuma not only has the Case Nine, he also has a Queen, and as they say up and down the LAPCnews.com hallways, Boat Don’t Lie.

Yaginuma defeats Aldridge heads-up to win LAPC Event 65 - $2,140 PLO - for $48,240 and the 63rd Remington awarded in the series (Survivor tourneys have no trophy).

Here’s the final results.
