Anatoly Gurtovoy

We walked up to table 11 when there was already quit a lot of some chips in the middle.

On a flop of {A-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Spades} we saw Talal Shakcerchi with a bet of 300,000 in front of him, while Anatoly Gurtovoy, who had apparently check-raised, had 800,000 out. Shakerchi shoved all in and Gurtovoy instantly called.

Anatoly Gurtovoy: {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}
Talal Shakcerchi: {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}

The {K-Clubs} on the turn brought some help to Shakerchi but not enough to get him in front.

The {J-Spades} on the river was a blank and Gurtovoy was visibly excited. He held out his wrist in front of his neighbor Haralobos Voulgaris and Voulgaris took his pulse and confirmed Gurtovoy was very excited doubling up.

The table laughed, including Shakerchi who aprted ways with 4,910,000 in chips and was left short.
