Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Kim Soars Courtesy of Sick Cooler


David Rood opened to 7,000 only to have an opponent three-bet to 16,000. With the action on Albert Kim on the button, he pushed out a further raise to 30,000.

Rood bumped it up again to 80,000 as the unknown player caught in the middle committed his final 67,000. Kim instantly six-bet all in for 97,500 and Rood made the call.

Kim: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}
Rood: {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}
Unknown Opponent: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

In a super-sick preflop cooler, Kim would have the best of it, and when the board ran out {4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}, he would be pushed the double and a bit to 261,000 as Rood slipped to 40,500 in chips.
