Rafe Kibrit Back From the Brink

Rafe Kibrit stands near his rail as they shout for a double up card.

After being pushed around during the last few hands, Rafe Kibrit pushed back and raised to 100,000 from the button. Elie Payan was not impressed and three-bet to 300,000, a bet which Kibrit called. The flop ran out {2-Spades}{6-Clubs}{10-Spades} and Payan bet the pot of 600,000.

Kibrit had enough of Payan's power plays and reraised all-in for his last 825,000 and Payan quickly called to put Kibrit at risk.


Payan: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Kibrit: {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}

Payan was in the lead with his pair of queens and he had a flush draw to boot. Kibrit held just a pair of tens and a gutshot straight draw and needed help to arrive on the river to survive.

River: {9-Diamonds}

Kibrit's help had arrived in the form of a non-spade nine, giving him two pair for the double-up. The match is now nearly even again after both players had staked themselves to huge leads in the last few hours.
