Short Day For Donev

Level 2 : 75-150, 0 ante

We just spoke kind words about Austrian chess master and live tournament grinder Ivo Donev, but unfortunately this didn't help him in the slightest. Donev was knocked out during the first level of play and Kevin Vandersmissen was kind enough to explain to us what happened.

Vandersmissen raised under the gun and five players called including Donev in the big blind. The flop brought {8-Hearts}{7-}{6-Hearts} and the blinds checked to Vandersmissen who bet 725 and [Removed:40] raised it up to 2,200 from the button.

"He snap-moved all in for 12k," Vandersmissen said about Donev, who committed all his chips with {A-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. Vitagliano called with {5-}{4-} and his straight held up knocking out Donev in the process.
