Event 41: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Kochelaevskiy Crushed


Vladimir Kochelaevskiy opened for 9,500 only to be met with a three-bet to 20,000 by Evan McNiff from the button. Both blinds got out of the way and Kochelaevskiy responded by moving all in for around 100,000, which McNiff called.

Kochelaevskiy: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
McNiff: {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}

Kochelaevskiy held the dominant pair and was in great shape to double, even after the {8-Clubs}{A-Spades}{J-Hearts} flop. Just when a win seemed certain, the {9-Clubs} spiked on the river to crush his spirits. While Kochelaevskiy picked up an open-ended straight draw, the {2-Hearts} would blank on the river to put an end to his day.
