Event #18: $10,000 Seven-Card Razz Championship

Kihara Takes Out Two

• Level 7: 1,500-3,000, 300 ante
Naoya Kihara

Japanese bracelet winner Naoya Kihara just took out two players and he's now among the biggest stacks in the room.

The action started on Andrew Rennhack who was all in for his tournament life from the bring in. Former WSOP Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel completed the bet and Kihara called.

Kihara bet on fourth street, Duhamel called. On fifth street Kihara check-called and on sixth it was Duhamel who check-called with only 1,100 chips left behind.

Rennhack: (X-X) / {K-}{9-}{K-}{5-} / (X)
Duhamel: (X-X) / {2-}{2-}{7-}{7-} / (X)
Kihara: (X-X) / {7-}{4-}{J-}{Q-} / (X)

On seventh street Kihara bet in the dark and Duhamel sighed as he looked down at his cards. The French Canadian super star put in the call quickly however, but the news he received wasn't good.

Kihara turned over {3-}{6-}{10-} for a ten-seven low while Duhamel tabled {3-}{6-}{J-} for a jack-seven low. Rennhack sarcastically threw his {8-}{5-}{5-} on the table and yelled "full house," and two players hit the rail.
