Sam Chartier

From middle position, Sam Chartier raised to 2,000. Action then folded to Sergey Tikhonov on the button and he called. Everyone else folded and the flop came down {J-Clubs}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}. Chartier fired a continuation bet of 2,500. Tikhonov raised to 5,000. Chartier thought for a minute and then reraised to 12,300. Tikhonov moved all in, having Charter covered. Chartier quickly called.

Chartier turned over the {A-Spades}{A-Clubs} and was all in for about 40,000 in chips. on the flop. Tikhonov held the {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for an open-ended straight draw.

The turn was the {10-Diamonds} to pair up Tikhonov, but Chartier was still in front. The river put him in last place though when the {8-Spades} fell and gave Tikhonov a straight to the queen. Chartier sent over the chips and wished the table good luck before departing the tournament area.
