There Go Another Two


Two more players went in quick succession and both were from the Russian Federation.

Jonathan Karamalikis opened from mid position with {7-Hearts}{7-Spades} and called when Konstantin Puchkov three-bet all in from the big blind with {k-}{q-}. The board ran {4-Spades}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} to make the Australian a set. Puchkov's dreams of making a second final table in three years here were dashed.

Moments after Konstantin Uspenskiy moved all in from the small blind when the action folded around to him. Aku Joentausta was in the big blind and made the call.

Uspenskiy: {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
Joentausta: {a-Clubs}{4-Spades}

The board ran {8-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Diamonds} to to make Joentausta the best two-pair.
