Kimmo Kurko Eliminated in 2nd Place (€750,000)

Yardley • Level 36: 200,000-400,000, 50,000 ante
Kimmo Kurko

Kimmo Kurko opened on the button for 800,000 with {a-Clubs}{4-Spades}. Tom Middleton three-bet to 2,000,000 and Kurko sat back to have a think about the situation. Just how many more times would he be able to lay down an ace? Kurko had 11.9 million behind and it was 1.2 million to call. Kurko decided it was time to make a stand and moved all in. Middleton quickly made the call and turned over {5-Spades}{5-Hearts}.

The flop was {10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and Kurko was left drawing to three outs. The {k-Hearts} turn and {8-Hearts} river bricked out. The British rail went crazy and a new EPT champion was crowned.
