Padmanaban Kulathur-Karvannan bagged up a stack of 39,500 to reach Day 2, but he said he ran into traffic this afternoon which is why he arrived late — into the second level of the day.
When he got here about 45 minutes late, Kulathur-Karvannan was down to one big blind in his stack, but he was able to survive for more than an hour to make it to the Money Bubble and a shot at redemption with a min-cash.
In Hand #5 of hand-for-hand play on the Money Bubble, Kulathur-Karvannan moved all in UTG+1 for 32,000, and James Scott called from the big blind with .
Kulathur-Karvannan turned over , and he was in a dominant position to double up here.
The board came — Scott paired his nine on the turn, but Kulathur-Karvannan celebrated when he saw the queen on the river to give him a higher pair.
