Kang Dodges a King


It all started when Eric Legoff opened to 38,000 early position. Andras Koroknai called on his direct left, Gaelle Baumann three-bet to 110,000 on the button, and Webber Kang cold four-bet to 230,000 from the big blind. Legoff quickly folded, and Koroknai went into the tank.

He asked for a count of Kang's stack, and Kang gave him a rough estimation. Koroknai proceeded to five-bet to 455,000. Baumann folded, and Kang tanked for a bit before moving all in. Koroknai immediately called.

"Kings?" Kang asked unhappily.

"No," Koroknai chuckled.


The {10-Spades}{4-Spades}{7-Clubs} flop was harmless, but the {a-Hearts} on the turn gave Koroknai four outs to a straight. The {9-Spades} bricked on the river though, and Kang more than doubled to 1.95 million chips.

Koroknai slipped to about 1.7 million.
