Turning into a Good Trip for Buddiga

This is Pratyush Buddiga's first trip to Europe to play poker. He only intended to play EPT Berlin but after he made the final table there (8th for €72,000) he thought he might as well try his luck here. Good job he did as he's tearing up the chip counts post bubble.

He just eliminated Chanracy Khun in a race to move up to around 700,000 chips. He opened from late position and called when Khun shoved from the small blind.

Khun: {3-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Buddiga: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}

The board ran {8-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{a-Clubs}{10-Spades} to make him trips.

(Thanks to Autumn from PokerStars PR for this hand. She's trailing as a field reporter this afternoon.)
