Hand 28: Michel Bouskila Doubles Through Barry Bashist

[user253757] • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Michel Bouskila Doubled Through With Big Slick

Hand #28: With his chip lead growing, Kenneth Lind opened to 135,000 trying to collect another uncontested pot, but Michel Bouskila reraised all in for his last 750,000 instead. Next to act, Barry Bashist quickly announced a call, and Lind was now forced to consider the situation carefully. He stood to examine Bashist's stack, which had about 1.2 million behind after the call. Eventually, Lind tossed his {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} face up on the table, and the remaining players tabled their holdings.


Bashist: {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}
Bouskila: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}

Bouskila had Bashist dominated, and the final board of {4-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} kept him out in front. The double up kept him in contention for a gold bracelet in this Seniors Championship, while Bashist lost almost half of his stack with the loss.
