Kihara Straightens Out Yuan

Josh_Cahlik • Level 15: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Wang Ping Yuan - Busted

Hoang Anh Do opened to 8,000 from under the gun and Naoya Kihara flat called from the next seat over. It folded around to Wang Ping Yuan who three-bet to 20,000 from the small blind. Do folded and Kihara stayed the course.

The flop brought {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{5-Hearts} and Kihara checked. Yuan continued out for 15,000 and Kihara took little time cutting out a raise to 35,000. Yuan responded by moving all in and Kihara snapped him off.

Kihara: {6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}
Yuan: {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

Yuan clapped when he saw that his middle set was currently the best hand. That jubilation, however, was short lived as the dealer produced the {9-Diamonds} on the turn, giving Kihara a straight. Yuan failed to fill up when the {K-Hearts} finished off the board and Yuan was sent packing. The Team Online pro is now sitting on about 230,000.
