John Skrovan Eliminated in 16th Place ($2,020)

GeoffFisk • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante
John Skrovan

Alex Conatser opened to 40,000 from the button, and John Skrovan called in the big blind.

The flop came {j-Spades}{q-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, Skrovan checked and Conatser bet 65,000. Skrovan put in the min check-raise to 130,000, and Cantser called.

The {5-Diamonds} came in on the turn, Skrovan bet 100,000, and Conatser raised all in. Skrovan, who had around a million chips to start the hand, hesitated for a bit before committing the remainder of those chips, making the call.

John Skrovan: {q-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Alex Conatser: {j-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

Skrovan had the better two pair in the huge pot, but the river was a devastating {6-Spades} for Skrovan, giving Conatser the full house and the come-from-behind win.
