Hoai Pham moved all in for 74,000 from under the gun. It was folded around to Stephen Bokor in the small blind who had nearly the same amount as Pham and took some time before he folded. Table leader Philipp Gruissem then looked at his cards from the big blind and immediately called.
It’s no wonder that Gruissem snap-called since he woke up with a monster and had a good chance to knockout Pham. That was until the flop came down and Pham who was already out of his chair began yelling, “Yes! Yes!” as he turned away. The on the turn left Gruissem needing one of the two remaining kings only to eliminate Pham but the river was the and Pham doubled. He will need quite a few more doubles to catch up to Gruissem though who could afford the hit at this point.
