Victor Ilyukhin Loses a Classic Race (76th, €9,500)

Level 17 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante

Victor Ilyukhin has just busted from the feature table after losing a classic race against Lauri Pesonen at the feature table. The former shoved for 54,500 from the button with {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} and Pesonen called from the small blind with {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}. That amounted to about two-thirds of Pesonen's stack.

In the commentary booth Joe Stapleton and Vicky Coren struck a €10 wager, with Stapleton taking the eights to win the race. The {6-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} board kept Pesonen in front and eliminated Ilyukhin. "That'll buy me half a drink at the hotel bar," quipped Stapleton.
