Rough Start for Lebedev

zedmaster84 • Level 23: 200,000-400,000, 400,000 ante

In a battle of the blinds, Sergey Lebedev raised to 1.1 million and Honglin Jiang three-bet to 3 million in the big blind, which Lebedev called. On the {Q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{3-Clubs} flop both players checked and Lebedev bet the {4-Clubs} turn for 3.5 million, Jiang called.

On the {K-Hearts} river, Lebedev shoved for 8.5 million effective and Jiang called with the {A-Diamonds}{k-Spades}. Lebedev only had {K-Clubs}{10-Spades} and had to forfeit a big chunk of his stack. Lebedev then lost a three-bet pot against Stephen Chidwick and Sam Greenwood and lost more than half of his stack thus far.
