Italian Mustapha Kanit was crippled down to a blind and a half 20 minutes ago, but he's come roaring back and is now up to over 33 big blinds.

Brian Yoon opened to 45,000 in the cutoff, Kanit flatted on the button, and the two took a flop of {5-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. Yoon check-called a bet of 42,000, then check-called another 95,000 from his Italian opponent on the turn ({6-Clubs}).

The {k-Spades} completed the board, Yoon checked a third and final time, and Kanit announced that he was all in. The amount of the shove was 259,000, and after two minutes or so, Yoon found a fold.
