Kihara Draws one and Bests Yu

• Level 31
Naoya Kihara

No-Limit Hold'em

Naoya Kihara raised from the cutoff to 170,000 and was immediately raised by Ben Yu to 400,000 on the button. Kihara thought for about a minute before deciding on the call. He left himself with about 800,000 behind going to the draw.

Both players took one card. After seeing what he was dealt, Kihara checked and waited to see if Yu would put another bet in. After thinking for quite some time, Yu checked behind.

"Jacks up," said Kihara, and showed {j-Hearts}{j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{4-Clubs}. Yu mucked and Kihara took down the pot.

"Do you call a shove?" asked Brad Ruben.

Kihara gave no response, just stacked the chips and smiled.
