As with any deep run in a tournament, the need to win coin flips is both necessary and left up to getting a bit lucky, and often in multiple hands.  Justin Liberto found himself on the unlucky end recently when he got it all-in pre-flop with his pocket 33 to the AQ of Justin Kang. Kang hit a Q on a double-paired board of K7KQ7 so even if the Q had not come, his kicker would’ve played as Liberto’s pair had been counterfeited.  Kang received the double up of his remaining 298k, and Liberto was left with a crippling 46k.
