€10,600 Main Event

Obrestad Killed by Zhuk

Yardley • Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Annette Obrestad

Andrey Gulyy opened for 2,400 and Annette Obrestad called in the cutoff. Aliaksei Zhuk from Belarus raised it to 7,800 from the big blind. Gulyy folded and Obrestad quickly moved all in.

Zhuk got the count of 33,300 and made the call. Obrestad had [8s 8] but Zhuk had crucially sneaked just ahead in the pair stakes with {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}.

The board ran out {2-Spades}{q-Spades}{3-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} and Obrestad’s tilt at the main event came to a premature end.

“Good game.” Obrestad offered. “See ya.” said Zhuk.

Turning to your PokerNews reporter watching the action he said, “I killed two girls. Can you imagine?”
