Bronshtein Stays Alive with River Diamond

BrandonBloom • Level 33: 200,000-400,000, 0 ante

Yuval Bronshtein lost some pots and had a short stack again before this hand.

In this hand, Kevin Erickson raised and was called by Bronshtein. The {4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop saw a check-call by Bronshtein.

On the {9-Diamonds} turn, Bronshtein check-raised and Erickson reraised to put him all in. Bronshtein called and hands were revealed.

Yuval Bronshtein: {k-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}
Kevin Erickson: {j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

Erickson was ahead with a pair and Bronshtein was looking for a river king or diamond to stay alive.

Bronshtein's rail was calling for a diamond as the dealer tapped the table and flipped over the {8-Diamonds} to give Bronshtein a flush and keep his tournament life alive, and Erickson was left asking the dealer if he could get a different river.
