Panka Doubles Through Abela

• Nível 20: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Right before the redraw, Dominik Panka was all in for his last 41,000 in chips. He got called by big blind Konrad Abela.

Panka had {7-Spades}{8-Diamonds} and was happy to see he was live and had a flip against Abela's {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}.

"I take that", said Panka. "Let's win the flip, come on dealer one time."

The camera's gathered around the table and Panka started to joke. "Come on, it's only three big blinds, nothing to worry about."

But Panka needed to worry because his handed hardly connected with the {K-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} flop. The {6-Diamonds} turn gave him a straight draw and the {5-Diamonds} was good for him.

Abela hit his set but it wasn't the right time to do so because Panka made a straight and doubled up through the local hero.

Panka is still short and Abela isn't sitting on many chips either. The Maltese player is aiming for the seventh place or better here which will make him top the all-time money list ranking for Malta on the Hendon Mob. Currently, Abela is fourth on that list.
