2014 World Series of Poker

Event #35: $5,000 Eight-Handed No-Limit Hold'em
Days: 2

Kanit Doubles on the Bubble

Level 17 : 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Ravi Raghavan opened for 9,000 from late position and then called when Mustapha Kanit three-bet to 22,500 from the big blind. When the flop came down {2-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}, Kanit bet 18,000 and then called off for 75,000 total after Raghavan shoved all in.

Kanit: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}
Raghavan: {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

Kanit held the granddaddy of all hands, but he needed to dodge Raghavan's flush draw to avoid becoming the bubble boy. That's just what he did too as the {2-Spades} blanked on the turn followed by the {5-Diamonds} on the river.
