Kanaan Flops Gin


A small raise to 27,000 from Sameer Rattonsey (with 9th-place finisher Antoine Amourette's chips) was called by big blind Michael Kanaan. Kanaan led into Rattonsey with a curiously small bet of 16,000 on a flop of {4-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}. Rattonsey called to the {2-Hearts} turn, where he took the betting lead with a bet of 24,000 after Kanaan checked. Kanaan check-raised to 61,000 but couldn't shake Rattonsey. He called, taking both players to the {10-Hearts} river. Kanaan bet 77,000. Rattonsey tanked for more than a minute before calling, but mucked as Kanaan showed {a-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} for a flopped wheel.
