Roberto Luongo Saves His Tournament Life

Roberto Luongo

A short-stacked Roberto Luongo was all in preflop and racing against Kyle Keranan.

Luongo: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}
Keranen: {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

Luongo was the one at risk and in need of some help, which is exactly what he got on the {10-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{Q-Spades} flop. The {2-Clubs} turn meant Luongo needed to dodge a seven on the river to stay alive, which is what he did when the {Q-Clubs} peeled off.

Here is a video interview with Luongo and our very own Sarah Grant from back on Day 1 of the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event.
