Mike Krasienko Eliminated in 17th Place ($42,393)

123md • Level 21: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante
Mike Krasienko

Mike Krasienko raised from under the gun and James Calderaro called from the next seat over.

The flop came down {J-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Krasienko bet. Calderaro called to see the {9-Spades} turn and called another bet from Krasienko. The river was the {9-Diamonds}, Krasienko checked, and Calderaro bet 500,000. Krasienko tanked for about two minutes.

"Show me if I fold?" asked Krasienko.

"Absolutely," responded Calderaro immediately.

About 20 seconds later, Krasienko called, but he mucked instantly when Calderaro tabled {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{6-Spades} for quad nines.

In the following hand, Ben Tollerene opened to 70,000 from the hijack and Krasienko called all in for about 35,000 from the big blind.

Tollerene: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}{K-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Krasienko: {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}

The board came down {J-Clubs}{10-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, not enough help to Krasienko, ending his tournament in 17th place.
