$25,000 Single-Day High Roller II

Cortes Eliminated First

• Level 1: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante
Jesús Cortes

Jesus Cortes raised to 2,500 from the hijack and Igor Kurganov three-bet to 13,000 in the small blind. Lucas Reeves called in the big blind and so did Cortes.

The flop came {5-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}, Kurganov check-called the 16,500 continuation-bet of Cortes while Reeves check-folded.

The turn brought them the {q-Clubs}, Kurganov checked again. Cortes bet 25,000 and Kurganov responded with a shove. Cortes snap-called but saw it wasn't good as he held {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for the flopped set of fives while Kurganov held the higher set with {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}.

Only a five would help Cortes but the river completed the board with the {4-Spades}. Kurganov's stack was counted first and was 73,500. Cortes' stack was then counted and he had 71,000 behind to be the first to be sent back to the registration desk.
