Marti Roca de Torres

Kimmo Kurko opened to 125,000 from an early position and the table short stack Marti Roca de Torres was in the big blind with 305,000 behind. The Spaniard moved all-in and Kurko instantly called to turn over the following cards.

Marti Roca de Torres: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Kimmo Kurko: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

The {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop propelled Kurko into the lead as no running outs were left. No miracle happened on the {q-Spades} turn and the {q-Hearts} river as the 2017 WSOPE Main Event champion had to settle for 8th place.
