Kuhnen Flops Trips

• Level 21: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

Markus Kuhnen raised to 32,000 from under the gun and Mihai Manole three-bet to 87,000 from the hijack. Action folded back to Kuhnen who made the call.

The flop came {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{8-Spades}, Kuhnen bet 42,000 and Manole called.

The turn brought them the {3-Spades}, Kuhnen now opted to check and Manole lead out for 87,000 which Kuhnen called.

The river completed the board with the {2-Hearts} and Kuhnen quickly checked. Manole took some time, counted out his white 25,000-value chips and then decided to also check. Kuhnen tabled {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} for trip kings and that was enough to make Manole muck his hand.
