Haralabos Voulgaris Eliminated in 8th Place

[user265690] • Level 16: 200,000-400,000, 50,000 ante
Haralabos Voulgaris and Anatoly Gurtovoy shake hands

Hand #8: Being one of the best sports bettors in the world, Haralabos Voulgaris would've known that the odds were stacked against him today. He came in as the short stack and would've been looking for a spot to get a double up and climb out of the basement.

Eight hands in, he found that spot. Action folded to him on the button and he moved all-in for around 11 big blinds. Just picking up the blinds and antes would've added almost 25% to his stack, but it would not be a raise and take as Anatoly Gurtovoy called from the small blind. When Elton Tsang folded from the big blind it was time for the showdown.

Voulgaris: {K-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Gurtovoy: {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}

Voulgaris had a 38.97% chance of surviving but the {9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}{8-Clubs}{2-Clubs} board didn't help him and he departed in eighth place. That all means that we're now on the bubble here in Monte Carlo. A €1,500,000 bubble.
