Jason Les Eliminated in 3rd Place (AU$351,360)

Webjoker • Level 22: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Jason Les

Igor Kurganov raised to 90,000 from the button and Chance Kornuth calmly called from the small blind. This made Jason Les add the needed chips as well and the three of them took a flop.

All three checked on {9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and the {2-Diamonds} was seen for free. Kornuth bet out 150,000 and Les made the call, leaving himself about 410,000 behind. Igor Kurganov folded.

The {K-Hearts} fell on the river and Kornuth moved 700,000 forward, more than enough to put Les to the decision for all of his chips. Les frowned, and put a couple of 25,000 chips in to indicate he was calling.

Kornuth instantly showed {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds} for the rivered set, giving Les the bad news. Les mucked but the dealer turned over his {9-Hearts}{2-Hearts} anyway.

Jason Les takes home AU$351,360. Igor Kurganov (80 big blinds) and Chance Kornuth (73 big blinds) now head to head for the title. The winner takes home AU$790,560, the runner up gets AU$541,680.
