Level 20: 6,000/12,000 (12,000)
Itay Cahana was among the recent players to hit the rail. He got it in good but sometimes this doesn’t matter, especially in this case when his opponent Victor Fryda had tons of equity.
Cahana checked the 7♥6♥4♠ flop before Fryda fired out for 45,000 into a pot of a bit more. Cahana tanked before he called. Bigger action came on the 2♣ on the turn. Cahana checked again. Fryda tanked for close to a minute before he jammed for 400,000. Cahana had about 250,000 behind and tanked for close to five minutes before he called.
Itay Cahana: 7♦5♠
Victor Fryda: A♥3♥
Cahana was ahead with his top pair and open-ended straight draw. However, any heart, any five, or any ace on the river would change the outcome. Fryda improved to a better pair than Cahana after the A♦ river completed the board. Cahana was out of chips but waited at the table quietly for his payout slip before leaving the tournament arena.
Victor Fryda – 900,000
Itay Cahana – 0
