Wood Picks off Naoya

Naoya Kihara has had some big success at this year's World Series of Poker, becoming Japan's first-ever WSOP gold bracelet winner. However, if he wants to capture another title, he will have to do a little better than how he has started today.

We recently caught up with the action on a {3-Clubs}{9-Spades}{a-Clubs} flop, with Kihara involved in a hand against Matt Wood. It was on Wood to act first and he opted to check-call a bet of 725. On the {k-Hearts} turn, Wood again check-called a bet, this time of 1,700. The {4-Spades} turn would see Wood tap the table again and Kihara decided to fire a third bullet. It was 3,000 to Wood and he made the call.

Kihara: {6-Spades}{5-Spades}
Wood: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}

Kihara bluffed at the wrong time, with Wood raking in the handy pot. After that, Kihara sits behind a stack of around 20,000.
