Konstantin Puchkov - 9th Place

Greg Raymer raised on the button, and Konstantin Puchkov defended his big blind. Puchkov check-raised the {3-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} flop, and Raymer called. The {k-Hearts} turned, and Puchkov bet 32,000, everything he had. Raymer called off for 2,000 less.

Raymer: {a-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
Puchkov: {a-Spades}{7-Spades}{j-Clubs}{6-Spades}

Raymer's two pair was ahead, and the {a-} river gave him better aces up than his opponent. Nobody had a low.

The next hand Puchkov was all in from the small blind. Calen McNeil and Kal Raichura saw the {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop for three bets, and McNeil check-called. McNeil check-raised the {k-Clubs} turn, forcing Raichura to fold.

He showed {a-Clubs}{3-Spades}{6-Spades}{j-Spades} for a bluff to take the side pot, and Puchkov was a favorite to survive with {a-Spades}{3-Spades}{4-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. The {q-Hearts} river gave McNeil broadway though, and Puchkov was the first to exit the official final table.
