Vadzim Kursevich Eliminated in 3rd Place ($158,530)

Vadzim Kursevich - 3rd Place

Brett Richey folded the button and Austin Scott raised the pot from the small blind, making it 120,000 to go. Vadzim Kursevich called all in for less out of the big blind and turned over the {K-Hearts}{J-Spades}{9-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. Scott held the {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades}.

The flop came down {A-Clubs}{5-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Scott picked up two pair. The turn {7-Clubs} and river {4-Diamonds} left him in front and Kursevich behind, which meant Kursevich was headed out the door in third place.

For his finish, Kursevich earned nearly $160,000 in prize money. With his bustout, the World Series of Poker gold bracelet was left to be decided between Scott and Richey.
