Kurganov Falls Into Gruissem's Trap

donpeters • Level 6: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Igor Kurganov

Igor Kurganov raised from the hijack seat to 4,500, and Philipp Gruissem reraised to 14,000 from the big blind. Kurganov called, and the flop came down {K-Spades}{9-Spades}{5-Hearts}. Gruissem checked, Kurganov bet 10,500, and Gruissem made the call.

The turn was the {3-Clubs}, and both players checked to see the {5-Spades} pair the board on the river. Gruissem checked, and Kurganov took his time before moving all in for 61,300. Gruissem snap-called.

Kurganov tabled the {10-Spades}{8-Spades} for a rivered flush, but it was the same river card that gave him the flush that also gave Gruissem a full house with the {K-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}. Kurganov was eliminated, and Gruissem moved to about 275,000 in chips.
