Jon Kalmar, good friend of Carbon sanghoki regular BullitPete has taken another pot away from Jerry Yang.

Both players checked their way round to the river, then after the river Jerry fired 1.5mil into the pot.
Jon quickly called and demanded Jerry show his hand, Jerry knew his he was beat and mucked handing the pot to Jon with his A-K.

He won that satellite and has turned that into a seat in this final table, and currently sits in fourth in chips.
