Hand #73: Ruberto's Tournament Life Comes Down to the River

[user153638] • Level 28: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #73: Tony Ruberto raised to 125,000 from the small blind, Davidi Kitai called from the big, and the flop came out {8-Spades}{k-Hearts}{3-Clubs}. Ruberto bet 165,000, Kitai called, and the {5-Clubs} appeared on the turn. Ruberto moved all in for 620,000 and Kitai snap-called.

Kitai: {k-Spades}{3-Diamonds}
Ruberto: {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Ruberto held top pair, but it was no good as Kitai had flopped two pair. Ruberto needed either a seven, eight, or five on the river to stay alive, and wouldn't you know it, he found one when the {7-Spades} spiked. Just like that Ruberto went from the short stack to having 2 million in chips.
