Kurganov Follows Schemion Out the Door in 2nd Hand of the Day

Chad_Holloway • Level 10: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Igor Kurganov

One hand after Ole Schemion fell on Table 10, fellow German Igor Kurganov followed him out the door.

It happened when Kurganov raised to 50,000 from the button and Doug Polk three-bet all in from the big blind. Kurganov thought for a bit before calling off for approximately 550,000, and he no doubt regretted it.

Kurganov: {6-Diamonds}{6-Spades}
Polk: {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}

Kurganov was dominated, and things got even worse when the {7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades} flop delivered Polk a set. The {8-Hearts} turn gave Kurganov some hope to a gutshot straight, but it didn't come in as the {A-Spades} blanked on the river.
