The Ladies Take from the Love Shak

Masa Kagawa

Dan Shak, who won this event back in 2010, has been on a heater here today and was responsible for the eliminations of both Andrew Robl and Patrik Antonius. He tried to add Masa Kagawa to that list, but it proved easier said than done.

It happened when Kagawa opened for 4,500 from the cutoff and Shak three-bet to 16,700 from the small blind. Kagawa called and watched Shak move all in on the {9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. Kagawa, who had 81,400 behind, thought long and hard before calling off with {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}, which was out in front of Shak's {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}.

The {Q-Hearts} turn gave Kagawa a set, but it was a bad card as Shak picked up a flush draw. Fortunately for Kagawa, the {J-Diamonds} blanked on the river and he doubled through the chip leader.
