Kanit Doubles Through Radoja

Mustapha Kanit

Mustapha Kanit (pictured) wears a smile as wide as the River Po at the worst of times, and the Italian is smiling with more energy than a minute ago after doubling up in the $25,000 High Roller here at the PokerStars Championship Bahamas.

Kanit was all-in on the flop {J-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{A-Clubs} and held {9-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. He needed help against Mark Radoja's {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} but duly got it on the {7-Diamonds} turn and after the river {2-Hearts} leapt up and yelled 'Yes!' The thing is, that can easily sound rude when read in black and white, but Kanit does it all with such a naturally self-effacing quality that, honestly, every other player in the room, even his rivals, seem to love him. The golden smile was flashed once more and he stacked up 80,000, still considerably less than Radoja was left with, but plenty.
