Hand #86: Alex Kuzmin Doubles Thru Shannon Shorr
Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Alex Kuzmin raises from the button to 50,000, and Shannon Shorr calls from the big blind. The flop comes J105, Shorr bets 77,000, and Kuzmin raises to 230,000.
Shorr thinks for about 30 seconds before he moves all in, and Kuzmin immediately calls with KK. Shorr turns over A6 for the nut flush draw with an overcard. Kuzmin needs his hand to hold to stay alive.
The turn card is the K, giving Kuzmin a set and killing Shorr's overcard outs and one of his diamonds.
The river card is the 10, and Alex Kuzmin wins the pot with his set of kings to double up, knocking Shorr down to about 13 big blinds.
