Anatoly Gurtovoy

Hand #190: Elton Tsang raised to 2,200,000 from the button. Rick Salomon folded from the small blind and Anatoly Gurtovoy moved all in from the big blind.

Tsang asked for an exact count, which turned out to be 16,650,000. Tsang counted out the chips and plaques to call, then slid them forward.

Tsang: {6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}
Gurtovoy: {k-Clubs}{9-Spades}

The flop came {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}. Gurtovoy made top pair to take the lead, but Tsang flopped a straight draw and could retake the lead with a 6 or 7. The turn was the {8-Diamonds}, and the river the {j-Spades}. Gurtovoy won with his pair of nines and earned a double up.
