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.
