Level 10: 1,000/2,000 (2,000)
Vlad Ardeleanu opened for 5,500 from middle position. Firat Cankara jammed for 23,000 from the cutoff. Ardeleanu called after he confirmed the amount.
Firat Cankara: J♦J♣
Vlad Ardeleanu: 10♥9♥
Cankara was in an amazing spot to double his short stack. Or at least so it appeared.
Ardeleanu paired up his nine on the 7♠9♣K♥ flop. Cankara was still ahead after the 4♣ turn. However, that all changed when the 9♠ spiked the river to improve Ardeleanu to a set.
“Good game,” Cankara said while appearing to take the bad beat in stride.
Firat Cankara – 175,000
Vlad Ardeleanu – 0
