Shih Goes Runner Runner to Double Through Elezra


With the ESPN cameras rolling, we found Kenny Shih all in preflop and at risk for his last 289,000 against Eli Elezra.

Elezra: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Shih: {A-Clubs}{J-Spades}

What was a standard flip became a dominant lead for Elezra after the {8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Spades} flop rolled down. The {10-Diamonds} on the turn gave Shih four outs to a straight with any nine and the river was...the {9-Hearts} to give Shih that straight and he celebrated. Some railbirds and other players at the table gasped and wowed while Elezra noted that he could have been over a million chips had he held through the turn and river.

Chip Counts
Eli Elezra us 680,000 -190,000
Kenny Shih us 600,000 412,000
