Kibrit Calls Vilkki Down, Rewarded On River

• Nivel 21: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante

After the action was folded around to him in late position, chip leader Juha Vilkki opened for 36,000 and Rafe Kibrit made the call. The flop fell {2-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{3-Clubs} and Vilkki fired out a bet of 45,000, which Kibrit quickly called.

The turn card came {J-Clubs} and Vilkki continued with a bet of 145,000. Kibrit took his time with this decision, but eventually slid out two stacks to make the call.

River: {A-Hearts}

Vilkki was undeterred by the scare card and slid 280,000 into the middle. Kibrit snap-called and revealed the {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{J-Clubs} for trip aces on the river. Vilkki lost over 400,000 chips on this hand and will have to rebuild after his three-barreled betting failed to move Kibrit off of his hand.
