Amak Outruns His Opponent to a Double Up
Livello 10 : 400-800, 100 ante
When we got to Amit Mahkija's table, he was all in for 16,750 after a raise from the cutoff and a call from the button. The cutoff tanked for over a minute before going all in himself. The button folded after about 20 seconds of thought, and the two players flipped their cards up.
The board ran out , and Mahkija doubled up to around 35,000. After the hand, the button sarcastically told the cutoff "nice shove" as he told the table he folded AQ, meaning that Mahkija was lucky in more ways then one to survive the hand.
