Event #55: The $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Puchkov & Shakerchi KO'd

Chad_Holloway • Level 8

Pot-Limit Omaha

We happened upon the action with around 22,000 in the pot and a board reading {3-Spades}{5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}. We're not sure of the flop action, but we do know Konstantin Puchkov was all in from the big blind and up against both Cary Katz and Justin Bonomo, who were in the small blind and button respectively.

Both active players checked the {5-Spades} turn and {2-Diamonds} river, prompting Katz to table the {a-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{2-Spades}{9-Spades} for fives full of deuces. Bonomo mucked and then Puchkov showed the {6-Spades}{k-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{10-Clubs} before taking his leave from the tournament.

Meanwhile, Talal Shakerchi has been eliminated from the tournament.
