Justin Kadet’s stack size doesn’t allow for much maneuverability, as he’s more or less stuck in a fit or fold mode of play. So far though, he’s making that strategy work, as he’s increased his stack over the last few hands by getting a few shoves through.
While those shoves might not be increasing his stack like a double up would, he’s still picking up close to 80,000 chips every time he takes down a pot pre flop and even more if he’s forcing a fold with a three-bet shove.
The only problem with this strategy, is that those increases to his stack aren’t lasting very long, as the button is circling fast as play is still five-handed. So, it should be interesting to see what happens the next time Kadet is looked up, as a double up would completely change the dynamic at this final table.
As we were typing this post, Kadet got that double up, as he moved all-in over the top of John Germano’s pre flop raise, with Germano calling to have the short stack dominated to Kadet’s .
The board ran out and Kadet rivered a straight to score the double, moving himself over the 1,000,000 chip mark for the first time since his run-in with Abraham Korotki.
