Event #38: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Michael Blanovsky Eliminated in 2nd Place ($336,253); Arkadiy Tsinis Wins!

[user80015] • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante
Michael Banovsky - 2nd Place

From the button Arkadiy Tsinis moved all in and Michael Blanovsky quickly made the call for just shy of 2,000,000 as the cards were placed on their backs.

Tsinis: {Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}
Blanovsky: {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

With Blanovsky in the lead for his tournament life, he would catch a pair on the flop as the dealer spread the {5-Spades}{10-Spades}{9-Hearts}. Unfortunately for Blankovsky, this particular flop gave his opponent Tsinis the maximum outs (excluding four-card flushes) as any king, queen, jack or eight would see him take the lead.

The dealer burned, turned and then revealed the {8-Clubs} to see Tsinis spike an unbeatable straight as the meaningless {8-Hearts} landed on the river to send Blankovsky to the rail in second place for a $336,253 payday as Arkadiy Tsinis is crowned Event #38 Champion!
