Kaarstad on the Rise Again

The action folded to Serdar Demircan in the small blind who made it 18,000 to go. Petter Kaarstad called from the big blind and the two players saw a flop of :::td:::9d:::6d.

Both players checked and the :::kc landed on the turn. Demircan led out for 23,000 and Kaarstad made a quick call. The river was the :::3s and Demircan sized up another bet of 60,000. Kaarstad thought for a moment but eventually made the call. Demircan showed :::ac:::jh for just ace-high while Kaarstad held :::kd:::7s for top pair.
