Naoya Kihara Applies The Pressure On Alexander Kostritsyn
We arrive at the table to see Naoya Kihara check from the big blind on a board showing . Kostritsyn then bets out 63,000 which sends Kihara into the tank. After a few minutes he makes the call before the dealer reveals the on the river.
Kihara pauses for a moment before announcing all in and sliding 170,100 into the middle. Kostritsyn then moves into the tank for three to four minutes, deliberating over his call.
Kostritsyn counts out the call and has it ready to slide in but changes his mind in the last second eventually mucking his hand.
Naoya Kihara - 359,100
Alexander Kostritsyn - 267,000
