Joe ‘Worm’ Palma jokes that it’s “Hard to kill a worm.” and while that might be true, it’s proving hard to kill Abraham Korotki at this BPPS final table. He just doubled again, for a second time in as many levels against John Germano. It was again a blind versus blind encounter but this time, there was no domination, as Korotki was flipping for his tournament life.

Germano opened the small blind to 240,000 and after some thought, Korotki moved all-in for 825,000. Germano snap called and Korotki said he “hoped Germano had ace-king” and while he didn’t, it was more or less the same hand, as Korotki held {2s}{2c} and was flipping against the big stack’s {As}{9s}.

That flip was more or less over on the flop, as the board ran out {9c}{7s}{2d}{Kc}{3s}, with Korotki flopping a set to more or less lock up the double. He’s now playing just under 1,700,000 and continues to be a hard player to dismiss from this BPPS final table.
