Aleksandr Mordvinov Eliminated in 9th Place (€57,500)

KaleGozer • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Aleksandr Mordvinov

Kalidou Sow raised to 130,000 from middle position. Behind him, Aleksandr Mordvinov once again reraised from a shallow stack and three-bet to 325,000. When action came back on Sow he called to see a flop.

With 830,000 already in the middle and 950,000 behind for Mordvinov, the two saw the {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop appear. Sow checked, Mordvinov bet 260,000, Sow check-raised all in and Mordvinov instantly called.

Kalidou Sow: {10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Aleksandr Mordvinov: {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}

It was an amazing flop for Sow, who even was a 56% favorite to win the hand with his straight flush draw. Mordvinov needed his aces to hold up or he would be gone in 9th place.

The dealer dealt the turn that ended it all: {J-Hearts}! Sow hit his straight flush and Mordvinov removed his sunglasses to shake his opponent's hand. The meaningless {6-Diamonds} on the river was the last card Mordvinov would see in the tournament and he was out in 9th.

With Mordvinov's elimination, the official final table is now set. Play for the day will continue until six players are left.
