BPPS $100K: All-In, Call And…Chop

Level 26 (20,000/40,000/4,000)
Total BPPS Entrants: 272
Players Remaining: 5
Chip Average: 1,650,000

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 {4h}{4c} face up in the big blind. Kadet held {Ah}{7c} to Asur’s {As}{Ks} 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 {Kh}{Jd}{Jc} flop but his tournament life was saved as the {Qd} came on the turn and the {10h} 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.
