Thomas Kurtz Eliminated in 17th Place ($11,759)

MartianNews • Level 22: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Thomas Kurtz

Stephen Song opened from the button and Thomas Kurtz then moved all in for around 170,000 from the small blind. Song called and the players turned over their hands.

Stephen Song: {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
Thomas Kurtz: {k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

The flop came down {a-Hearts}{8-Spades}{3-Clubs} and Song was still ahead. The turn would seal the deal as it came a {q-} and Song now had his opponent drawing dead to the {9-Spades} on the river.

Song took down the pot with his set of queens and has been having a good start to the day. Meanwhile Kurtz's run ends in 17th place.
