Heinecker Doesn't Know

[user20283] • Level 14: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Philipp Gruissem just moved all in for about 150,000 and the action was folded to Niklas Heinecker in the small blind.

"I'm so bad at ICM you should be sh*t scared right now," Heinecker said to Gruissem who sat in silence. Heinecker, mostly a high stakes cash game player, eventually decided to let his hand go.

Kurganov Takes The Lead After Picking Off Heinecker's Bluff

[user20283] • Level 14: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Niklas Heinecker raised to 16,000 from the button and Igor Kurganov called from the small blind.

The flop brought out {Q-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and Kurganov check-called 24,500.

On the turn the {2-Spades} hit and this time Kurganov check-called 55,000. The river was the {K-Hearts} and Kurganov checked again. Heinecker proceeded to bet 200,000 and that was 2,000 more than what Kurganov had left. He made the call and Heinecker turned over {9-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for total air. Kurganov showed his {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} and took down this massive pot with two pair.
