Ask And Thou Shalt Recieve

Sam Khouiss asked for Carl Booth to shove on him when he next open raised, and so Booth delivered.

Khouiss opened to 160,000 and Booth promptly moved all in covering Khouiss. Khouiss showed a {j-?} as he folded, so Booth responded by flashing an {A-?} as he pitched his hand into the muck and scooped Khouiss' chips.

Cabret Pushed Over

First hand after the break Joe Cabret opened to 200,000 chips from the under the gun. Action folded to Carl Booth on the button who announced that he was all in. The blinds folded, as did Cabret.

"Come on, do that when I raise," was the obligatory comment from Sam Khouiss.
