George Knocks Out Two, New Leader

Shamus • Level 12
Konstantin Bucherl


Christopher George has catapulted into the chip lead here at the start of Level 12, having earned a big boost to his stack after scoring a double-knockout in a stud hand.

The hand saw Konstantin Bucherl all in by third street, then another player all in by sixth. With the second all-in, everyone's cards were revealed:

Bucherl: {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs} / {6-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} — sixes, flush draw
second all-in player: {4-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} / {A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{10-Spades} — flush draw
George: {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds} / {3-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{4-Spades}{K-Hearts} — full house

George's hand made the others' draws inconsequential, so when Bucherl filled his flush it didn't help him as he and the other player hit the rail. Meanwhile George is now up over 140,000, the biggest stack in the room at present.
