Xenofontos: catch of the day
We just caught the action as Karib Karib, Xen Xenofontos and Semon Deeb were all standing up around their table.

After some early preflop action, Karib ended up putting his last 35,700 into the middle with a pot of around 20,000. Xenofontos had called and Deeb looked pained as he mucked his hand - so to the showdown we went:

Karib: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
Xenofontos: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}

The board ran out {7-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} to double Karib up over 95,000 in chips.

"I had pocket nines," said Deeb.

"Big fish got away," Karib replied.
