Big Coinflip Goes Khoroshenin's Way

Level 26 : 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Gavin O'Rourke raised to 85,000 from the cutoff and Oleksii Khoroshenin three-bet from the button to 225,000. Timo Pfutzenreuter went into the tank for a long time before making it 405,000 from the small blind.

Both Marko Neumann, from the big blind, and the initial raiser folded putting the action back on Khoroshenin. The Ukrainian pro tanked for over six minutes, with about 1.1 million left behind, and he finally opted to move all in for 1,140,000 and his opponent snap-called.

Khoroshenin: {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}
Pfutzenreuter: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

The board ran out {6-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Spades} and Khoroshenin raked in a big double up. Pfutzenreuter has now lost his chip lead and the short-handed pre final table action gets that much more interesting all of a sudden.
