[user162117] • Level 2: 100-200, 0 ante

It's very rare to see players all in during Level 1 of a tournament in which they start with 200 big blinds. But that's where Emi Hibuse found herself a few moments ago.

The board was already out, {4-Spades}{9-Clubs}{6-Spades}{j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. Hibuse was out of position to button player Mike Takayama, who made a massive over-bet of 18,000 into a pot with just a few thousand chips in it. Hibuse tanked for a few minutes before calling all in for 10,125. Takayama immediately tapped the table "good call" and mucked. With Takayama having mucked, Hibuse never showed the hand with which she was willing to risk her tournament life in Level 1. But whatever it was, it allowed her to double up back to the starting stack.
