Kanit Crippled by Heath

Mateusz_Pater • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Ben Heath

Mustapha Kanit raised to 85,000 from the cutoff before Ben Heath bumped it up to 265,000 from the button. Kanit called after both blinds mucked their hands.

The flop came {q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} and Kanit checked. Heath threw out a continuation bet totalling 185,000. Kanit called.

Both players then checked the {q-Clubs} on the turn before the {k-Spades} completed the board.

Kanit checked for a third time only to be met with an all-in from Heath worth 1,275,000.

Kanit went into the tank for almost five minutes as Heath sat motionless in his chair with his hand and hoodie covering his mouth.

Eventually, Kanit called and watched as Heath tabled {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for a straight. Kanit's {a-Spades}{10-Clubs} was tabled and he dropped to only 315,000.
