"Not 'Chainsaw' Approved"

Level 8 : 250-500, 50 ante

We saw Liv Boeree over at Table 10 talking to her significant other, Igor Kurganov, which led us to believe that she had been eliminated from the tournament. A quick check with Allen "Chainsaw" Kessler, who had been at her table, confirmed her demise.

As he told it, Boeree moved all in under the gun for her last 6,875, a move he was highly critical of. "When you go all in under the gun with deuces, no matter what calls you, you're never ahead," he explained.

He then informed us that Benjamin Pollak had called her with {a-}{k-} and a king hit the flop.

"Not 'Chainsaw' approved," Kessler said, shaking his head.
