Kovyazin Gives One Up
Level 19 : 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Vitaly Kovyazin raised to 17,000 from early position and found two callers including the player in the big blind. The flop came and the player in the small blind checked. Kovyazin bet 36,000 and the first caller opted to fold. After a few moments of thought, the player in the big blind announced that he was all in. Kovyazin immediately leaned back in his chair, tossed his cards into the muck, and shook his head. Despite the small hit, Kovyazin is still sitting with one of the biggest chip stacks in the room with 605,000 in chips.
