Igor Kurganov - 4th Place

Sam Trickett and Igor Kurganov saw a flop together and it came {9-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{2-Spades} after unknown preflop action. Kurganov was first and checked. Trickett bet 80,000, and Kurganov made the call.

The turn was the {4-Spades}, and Kurganov checked. After Trickett bet 160,000, Kurganov check-raised all in. Trickett snapped.

Kurganov tabled a flush with the {J-Spades}{7-Spades}, but the turn card was extremely deadly as it gave Trickett a straight flush with the {6-Spades}{5-Spades}. Kurganov was drawing dead and the river bricked off to finish the hand.

Kurganov fell in fourth place for AU$500,000 and brought his 2013 Aussie Millions earnings to AU$1,110,000 when combining with his second-place finish in the $100,000 Challenge.
