Makani Earns Knockout & One Round Penalty


Matthew Davis opened for 30,000 and Shoab Makani raised to 130,000 behind him. Action folded over to Robert Lipkin and he moved all in. Davis folded after a moment and Makani called, just having enough to cover Lipkin.

Lipkin: {A-Spades} {A-Diamonds}
Makani: {K-Diamonds} {K-Spades}

Board: {3-Hearts} {7-Clubs} {10-Hearts} {K-Clubs} {Q-Clubs}

When Makani spiked his king on the turn he jumped up out of his chair and yelled, "That's what I'm talking about!" He also high-fived someone on the rail. Lipkin was visibly upset by the beat and outburst and immediately left the tournament area. After Makani dragged the pot the Floorman gave him a one round penalty for excessive celebration.
