The river has been Abraham Korotki’s best friend today, as it’s kept him alive a few times and also scored him a few eliminations. This time, it was the former, as Korotki was all-in and at risk for his tournament life and caught another timely river to get an extremely important double up.
The action was picked up with John Germano raising from the small blind, only to see Korotki move all-in for 705,000 from the big blind. Germano called and had his opponent dominated, holding to Korotki’s .
Both players paired up on the flop and after the fell on the turn, it was looking like the pot was about to be chopped. That was, until the spiked on the river to give Korotki a better two pair.
Germano couldn’t believe it but it’s was just a small hit to his stack and while the double keeps Korokti alive, he’ll likely need another to get back into contention, as he’s still playing just over ten big blinds.
