Moon Kim Doubles Thru Curt Kohlberg
Level 14: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante
With around 70,000 already in the pot and the board reading K1010, Curt Kohlberg bets 35,000 from middle position. Season X Bay 101 Shooting Star Champ Moon Kim is on the button and thinks a minute or so before calling.
The turn brings the 4 and Kohlberg checks. Kim bets 60,000. Kohlberg thinks a minute or so, then announces he is all-in, having Kim's remaining 230,000 well covered. Kim thinks maybe 30 seconds before calling.
Kohlberg shows QJ for a turned flush. Kim lets out a frustrated sigh, as he shows AA for aces up with the nut flush redraw.
"Come on diamond," Kim tells the dealer.
The river isn't a diamond, but it does bring the A, improving Kim to a full house.
"Yes!' Kim exclaims as he realizes he has the winning hand. Kohlberg says nothing, but hangs his head for a moment before counting out the chips to pay off Kim.
Moon Kim - 765,000 (153 BBs)
Curt Kohlberg - 550,000 (110 BBs)
