Steve Karp

With the board showing AcJh9h9c on the turn, the player in the small blind bet 15,000, and Steve Karp moved all in UTG+1 for 34,600.

His opponent tanked for a while before he called with AsQs for two pair, aces and nines with a queen kicker.

But Karp turned over AdKc for the same two pair with a king kicker, and he needed it to hold to stay alive.

The river card was the 5c, and Karp won the pot to double up in chips.

Steve Karp  –  97,000  (194 bb)
