Katz Drags a Pair

Level 21 : 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

Cary Katz raised to 27,000 from the hijack, and Davidi Kitai, in the cutoff, was the only caller.

The flop came {3-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}, and Katz continuation-bet 25,000. Kitai called. The turn came {j-Clubs}, completing the three-flush, and Katz checked. Kitai bet 44,000, and Katz did the calling this time. The river brought a {k-Diamonds}, and Katz retook the lead with a bet of 125,000. Kitai folded.

The next hand, Katz opened for another raise, this time to 24,000. Again, it was the cutoff playing, this time Dario Minieri. However, instead of a mere call, Minieri popped it to 70,000. Katz thought for a couple of minutes before announcing "pot." Minieri folded immediately.
