Hand #120: And then there were three...

From under-the-gun Anatoly Gurtovoy opened to 2,000,000, Elton Tsang called on the button and James Bord came along from the big blind. On the {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} flop Gurtovoy bet 3,000,000, interestingly he did it using plaques, rather than chips, it was the first time we've seen the plaques used for a bet at this final table. After Tsang folded, Bord shoved for about 12,000,000 and Gurtovoy snap called with {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}. He was ahead of Bord's {A-Spades}{10-Spades} and it stayed that way on the {9-Hearts} turn and {J-Spades} river.

Bord shook hands with his opponent's who are all now guaranteed €3,000,000.
