Ingham Busts Kornuth to Double

Chance Kornuth has taken one too many it would seem and the US player has just busted at the hands of tablemate Sam Ingham.

We caught the action on a flop of {7-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} in a three-way pot just as Kornuth, sitting in the small blind, led out for 5,500 into what looked to be a pot of between 8,000-9,000.

The big blind folded over to Sam Ingham in the cutoff, who thought it over for a while before sliding out a raise to 20,000 in total.

After asking how much Ingham had behind – around 65,000 – Kornuth made the call and the dealer burned and turned the {10-Spades}.

This brought a check from Kornuth. Ingham took his time over the decision before announcing he was all-in.

“So sick…’ said Kornuth, ‘is a set of fives any good?”

“I don’t think I can fold…”

Kornuth looked pained by the decision at hand, looked to be leaning towards a call, then a fold before eventually stacking up his chips and moving them into the middle.

Ingham tabled {6-Clubs}{4-Clubs} for the flopped straight, which was leading Kornuth’s {5-Spades}{5-Clubs} and with no pair up on the river Kornuth tapped the table, congratulated Ingham on the hand and headed for the rail. Ingham climbed to over 160,000 after that spot of good fortune and if he’s not the chip leader he is definitely in contention for the top spot.
