Kurganov Doubles Into the Lead

zedmaster84 • Level 17: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Igor Kurganov

Christopher Kruk made it 90,000 to go first to act and Igor Kurganov flat-called from one seat over on the button. On the {J-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop, Kruk continued for 85,000 and Kurganov called before the {K-Diamonds} on the turn brought a second barrel for 300,000 and a call by Kurganov.

The {4-Diamonds} river completed the board and Kruk moved all in, Kurganov snap-called for 725,000. Kruk was caught with the fingers in the cookie jar and briefly flashed {Q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} for a bluff gone wrong, while Kurganov had the {K-Spades}{J-Diamonds} for kings and jacks. Suddenly the PokerStars Team Pro now holds the lead with four players remaining after being the shortest stack not long ago.
