Mustapha Kanit just exhibited why he’s considered an elite player after making what can only be described as a sick call against Tony Mladenovski.
It was three-handed on a flop of and after the small blind checked his option, Mladenovski fired for 38,500. Kanit called and with the small blind out of the way the dealer revealed the turn card.
Mladenovski loaded up again and fired for 44,500. Kanit stuck around to see the river.
Mladenovski then made it 49,500 and Kanit began to deliberate. He appeared to be counting his own stack and spent a couple of minutes analyzing the situation. Ultimately Kanit decided on a call with for just bottom pair.
That was good as Mladenovski was holding with ace high.
“Nice hand” Mladenovski conceded as the pot was pushed to Kanit.
“I wasn’t sure if I had to raise or call the river,” commented Kanit, who added that he just called due to the looming bubble.
