Kurganov Busts Yu & Lee to End the Night

Chris Lee

In what would be the last hand of the night, Igor Kurganov scored a rare double elimination, meaning we'll be coming back to Day 2 with just two players.

The hand began with Winfred Yu opening for 20,000 from middle position and Kurganov three-betting to 40,000 right behind. When action reach Chris "Genius28" Lee in the small blind, he four-bet to 130,000, leaving just 36,000 behind, and Yu called off for around 53,000. Kurganov hit the tank for nearly five minutes before announcing that he was all in, and Lee called off.

Kurganov: {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}
Yu: {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}
Lee: {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}

Kurganov got it in good, but he had to dodge a lot of outs. He did so on the {8-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop as no player held a diamond, and the {Q-Hearts} was safe enough. The dealer burned one more time and put out the {5-Hearts}, giving Kurganov the double elimination to end Day 1.
