Hand #159: Steve Buckner Doubles Thru Chance Kornuth

May 26, 2022

Chance Kornuth raises to 1,600,000, Steve Buckner reraises to 4,000,000, and Kornuth thinks for about 25 seconds before he moves all in.

Buckner calls all in for 14,600,000 with Spade ADiamond J, and Kornuth turns over Spade QHeart 5. Buckner needs his hand to hold to stay alive.

Kornuth smiles and says, “I thought you were you bluffing.”

The board comes Club AHeart 6Diamond 3Club 9Heart J, and Buckner pairs his ace on the flop and his jack on the river to win the pot with two pair and double back into the chip lead.

Seat 1.  Steve Buckner  –  30,000,000
Seat 5.  Chance Kornuth  –  9,400,000
