Doug Polk raised to 9,500 from the button, and Mustapha Kanit three-bet to 25,500 from the small blind. Fedor Holz, who made quite the comeback earlier today, cold four-bet to 65,000. Polk quickly folded, but Kanit bumped up the action one more time by making it 101,000. Holz called in position, and the two of them saw a flop in an already huge pot.
The flop came down , and Kanit bet out 58,000 with around 120,000 behind. Holz shoved all in and Kanit made the call.
The flop came about as good as they could come for Holz who hit a pair, flush draw, and backdoor straight draw. For Holz, Kanit had about the best hand in this spot possible: two overs and a gut shot.
The on the turn was of no real influence, and you could see the tension grow on both of their faces.
The on the river was anything but a blank and Kanit secured his double up. A composed Holz cut out 180,500 to sent to his neighbor while Kanit fist pumped towards one of the railers, but didn't cheer too loud.
"Make sure you mention that I started this all," said Doug Polk.
"Make sure you mention that he mentioned wanting it mentioned," laughed Olivier Busquet.
Busquet and Polk got into a fun little raising war concerning the mentions, but we'll just leave it at that.
