Any2Cantu Can't Beat 22

A camera crew sprinted to catch Brandon Cantu trying to knock out Michael Maitre. Maitre was all in for around 80,000 with {2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and flipping against Cantu's {10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}. "One time!" Cantu shouted. "You haven't used that up yet?" Shawn Rice asked him. "I know I'm going to hit it," Cantu responded. But the flop was an unhelpful {q-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}. "Eight, eight, eight, eight," he begged, hamming it up for the cameras. Instead, the turn was the {j-Spades}, giving him a gutshot. "Eight, nine, ten, eight, nine, ten," Cantu cried while Maitre sat silently. The {k-Spades} wasn't what Cantu had requested. He doubled up the quiet Maitre. dropping to about 110,000 himself.
