Kurganov Runs Queens Into Kings

zedmaster84 • Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Igor Kurganov

One of the two remaining PokerStars Team Pros has been eliminated. It was Igor Kurganov who raised to 24,000 in the cutoff and Julian Stuer three-bet to 78,000 in the big blind. Kurganov four-bet shoved for around 360,000 and Stuer quickly called.

Julian Stuer: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}
Igor Kurganov: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

"Mamaaa" demanded Kurganov, asking for one of the remaining two queens in the deck. However, he was drawing very thin on the {K-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{5-Clubs} flop and officially drawing dead on the {4-Clubs} turn. The meaningless {Q-Clubs} on the river for the inferior set ended the hand and Kurganov's run in 24th place for €45,820.
