Kurganov Busts

Level 17 : 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

On the last hand before the break, which ran over into break time, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier busted Igor Kurganov.

Grospellier raised all in from early position and action folded to Kurganov on the button. He thought for a bit and then called all in for approximately 300,000. Grospellier held the {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs} and Kurganov the {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}.

Kurganov pulled ahead on the {Q-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop, but the {10-Spades} on the turn gave Grospellier a Broadway straight and left Kurganov hoping for just a chop on the river to stay alive. The river was the {6-Spades} and Kurganov was eliminated in eighth place.
