Action was opened in the hijack to 2,500. The cutoff called and action was on Kiran Raina on the button. Raina took a moment to think before landing on a three-bet to the tune of 8,000. The remaining players in the blinds folded and both the hijack and cutoff called.
The Q♦5♣3♦ flop hit the felt and the hijack checked. The player in the cutoff then opted to lead into the three-bettor and put out 16,000. Raina was on the button with about 28,000 remaining in his stack. He didn't take long before moving in for his tournament life. The hijack tank folded and the cutoff snapped.
The cards hit their backs.
Kiran Raina: K♦Q♥
Raina needed to fade quite a few outs. The 7♠ turn was clean and the 9♣ river sealed the deal giving Raina a pure double and putting him above average stack for the day.
