Iosif Beskrovnyy has just been eliminated from the European Poker Tour Prague main event after losing one of tournament poker's many coinflips.
Romanian Dany Parlafes opened to 42,000 from the hijack only to see Team PokerStars Pro Johnny Lodden three-bet to 82,000 on the button. The small blind instantly folded, but Beskrovnyy four-bet all in for 330,000 from the big blind.
Parlafes decided the best way to play his hand was to five-bet all-in and Lodden rocked back in his chair and looked to the skies. After a minute or so, Lodden reluctantly folded and the cards were revealed.
The flop missed Parlafes, but he did pick up a flush draw to go with his gutshot straight and two over cards. The turn missed both players but the river was one of Parlafes' many outs and we are down to 19 players in the EPT Prague main event.
When the hand was completed Lodden said that he would have won the full pot had he called Parlafes' re-shove.
