Chouity Pays off Kurganov

zedmaster84 • Level 12: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Igor Kurganov raised to 30,000 from the cutoff and Nicolas Chouity three-bet to 71,000 from two seats over in the small blind, Kurganov called. On the {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop, both players checked. Chouity then bet the {7-Hearts} turn for 42,000 and Kurganov raised to 116,000, Chouity called.

After the {4-Hearts} river, Chouity checked and Kurganov bet 138,000 for most of his remaining stack. Chouity was stuck in the think tank and eventually asked "you never bluff?" After some further consideration, he called and then mucked when Kurganov showed him the {A-Clubs}{9-Hearts}.

One hand later, Kurganov raised to 26,000 and then folded to the shove of Chouity.
