Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Early Exit For Kurganov


Igor Kurganov's been having his best year so far, after he managed to win the €25,000 European Poker Tour Monte Carlo High Roller for $1.4 million. Kurganov will not add another succes to his resumé in the World Series of Poker Main Event, as he just busted.

Kurganov told us he raised to 700 from the hijack with a 36,000-chip stack. The button called with 14,000 behind and the small blind, Don Nguyen, called with a 42,000 stack.

The flop came down {A-Clubs}{8-}{2-Clubs} and the small blind checked to Kurganov who bet 1,200. The button moved all in for 13,000 and the Don Nguyen called. Kurganov called as well.

The turn was the {J-Clubs} and Don Nguyen put Kurganov all in. He made the call creating a three way all-in showdown.

Igor Kurganov{8-Clubs}{8-}
Don Nguyen{9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

Kurganov was looking for an ace, jack or eight in order to survive, but the river was a {4-}. Kurganov is out and his WSOP is over. Don Nguyen was up to 95,000 chips, but as of right now he's down to just 6,000 chips.
