Witek Stays Alive on the River as Money Bubble Looms


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.



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.
