Igor Kurganov - 11th Place

Igor Kurganov opened to 40,000 in the cutoff, Richard Lyndaker three-bet shoved for effectively 353,000 out of the big blind, and Kurganov called.

Kurganov: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
Lyndaker: {a-Spades}{8-Clubs}

Kurganov was in great shape to double, and remained ahead on a flop of {5-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. The {8-Spades} spiked on the turn, however, giving Lyndaker aces and eights, and the {3-Diamonds} bricked off on the river.

Kurganov is out in 11th place, earning $71,071, and Lyndaker now has 751,000 chips.
