Witek Stays Alive on the River as Money Bubble Looms

Chad_Holloway

With the money bubble rapidly approaching, a short-stacked Francis Witek called all in from the big blind for 33,000 after Nicholas Augustino had pushed from the small.

Showdown

Witek{A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}
Augustino{Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

Witek was clearly nervous, even admitting as much to the table. With a minimum payday of $19,227 lurking, the flop came down {10-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{9-Hearts} to put a dagger through Witek's heart. The {8-Diamonds} turn gave Witek a few more outs to survive, and much to his relief, the {A-Clubs} spiked on the river to give him a pair of aces and the double.
