Bronshtein and Bell Eliminate Two

We just arrived at Table 357 to find a huge pot brewing between four players that ended up seeing the double elimination of Roman Verenko and Alex Dovzhenko.

By the time we were at the table, Dovzhenko had 60,000 out in front of him, Verenko was all in for his short stack, Chris Bell was all in for a little over 60,000 and it was back on Bronshtein who already had 20,000 committed to the pot. Bronshtein thought hard before eventually making the call, prompting the dealer to spread out a {5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{4-Hearts} flop.

On the flop, Bronshtein announced the all in and Dovzhenko made the call, with Bronshtein having him covered. At this point all four players turned their hands over.

Bronshtein: {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}
Bell: {a-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{8-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Verenko: {k-Spades}{9-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Dovzhenko: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{3-Spades}

The {3-Diamonds} on the turn was a huge card for Bell and Bronshtein as they had the wheel and with a {j-Hearts} on the river changing nothing, Bronshtein and Bell would share the massive pot, with the other two players eliminated. With Bronshtein having all the players covered before the hand, he got the largest share of the gigantic pot and is now sitting behind a monster stack, while Bell is sitting with a much healthier stack than before the hand.
