Becker Runs Into Kurganov's Big Slick

• Level 17: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante

Johannes Becker opened to 125,000 from under the gun and Igor Kurganov stuck in a three-bet on his left. The action folded back to Becker who four-bet shoved all in and Kurganov snapped him off.

Igor Kurganov: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
Johannes Becker: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

The flop fell {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{j-Spades} giving both players a pair, Kurganov with the higher of the two. The {4-Hearts} and {8-Clubs} runout could not help Becker and he was eliminated. The final 24 players will now redraw for seats at the final three tables.
