RG NKC MAIN EVENT (DAY 1A): YOUNG CUTS DOWN KARN
Level 9 (600/1200/1200)
Total Entrants: 63
Justin Young (pictured) limps from under-the-gun and Chris Horter raises from middle position to 2,500. Papa Karn calls in the cutoff and it folds back to Young, who three-bets to 8,000. Horter folds and Karn calls.
The flop comes K♦7♦6♥. Young continues for 12,000 and Karn calls. The turn is the 9♠, and Young moves all-in for 17,500. Karn quickly calls.
"That's not good," Young says, but when the cards are turned up, Young is well ahead.
Justin Young - A♥A♣
Papa Karn - K♠Q♦
Karn needs to improve or be left with fewer than five big blinds. The river brings paint, but not what Karn needs when the J♥ hits the felt.
Justin Young - 82,800
Papa Karn - 5,400
