Hallaert Doubles Through Kurganov

will_shill • Level 9: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante

Igor Kurganov opened to 23,000 from the button and Kenny Hallaert, three-bet all in for 85,000 from the big blind. The big blind folded and Kurganov called.

Kenny Hallaert: {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Igor Kurganov: {k-Spades}{3-Spades}

The board ran out {5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{q-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Diamonds} with Hallaert initially moving as if to pull his chair out as if he were eliminated. However, on closer inspection his king-jack had held and he doubled to around 200,000.
