Igor Kurganov Eliminated in 2nd Place (AU$541,680)

Chad_Holloway • Level 23: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Igor Kurganov - 2nd Place

In what would be the final hand of the tournament, Igor Kurganov raised to 100,000 from the button and Chance Kornuth called to see a {6-Clubs}{5-Spades}{7-Diamonds} flop. Kornuth checked, Kurganov bet 170,000, and Kornuth check-raised all in. Kurganov thought about it for 30 seconds or so and then called off his remaining 900,000.

Kornuth: {7-Clubs}{3-Clubs}
Kurganov: {6-Hearts}{a-Hearts}

Kurganov needed some help to stay alive, but it never came as the {9-Diamonds} blanked on the turn followed by the {4-Diamonds} on the river.
