Justin Kadet returned from break as the shortest stack and while he just got all-in and rivered a straight, that river card didn’t increase his stack, as it also gave Eliyah Asur a straight with both players chopping the pot.
That action was picked up pre flop, with Kadet moving all-in for just under 500,000 from the cutoff. Asur, next to act on the button verbalized “call” and then Joe ‘Worm’ Palma folded face up in the big blind. Kadet held to Asur’s and needed to hit a three-outer of his own to score a much needed double up.
A three-outer wasn’t going to be any good after the flop but his tournament life was saved as the came on the turn and the gave both players broadway on the river.
Kadet now has a second chance at life at this final table, still working the shortest stack with close to 15 big blinds.
