Kanaan's Shot Backfires
The final table chip leader Michael Kanaan just took a shot at eliminating Xing Zhou, and that backfired horribly. Kanaan lost his chip lead and doubled up his Chinese opponent.
The action started with a raise to 25,000 which Zhou decided to call. Kanaan was in position and he three-bet to 74,000. The initial raiser folded and Zhou made the call.
The flop brought out and Zhou checked to Kanaan who bet 80,000. Zhou check-raised to 185,000 and Kanaan moved all in. Zhou snap-called creating a pot of just under one million chips.
Zhou had flopped a set and was well out in front. The board ran out , and Kanaan lost this massive pot knocking him down to third place. It's anyones game here at the ACOP final table with still nine players remaining!
