Busts Everywhere

Championship Event
$3300 + $200 NL

Busts Everywhere -- and I'm not talking about the cocktail waitresses.

On a flop of 7 7 3 with two hearts, Igor Borukhov (bb) check-raised Steven Levy to the tune of 92,500. Steven folded and Igor showed 53 of clubs. "That's how we do it in Queens" Igor said as he was collecting his chips.

After Jesse Yaginuma opened for 12,300, Tim Ulmer kicked it up to 35k from the cutoff. Eric 'sheets' Haber (bb) raised to 1125k straight. Tim folded out of the way and Tim announced he was all-in (262,800). Eric groaned as he made the call, showing pocket 9s. Tim held pocket Kings. The board fell A 5 4 8 7 (apparently Jesse folded an Ace) and Tim collected the double-up to over 540k. Sheets was left short with about 150k.

On the turn with a board of K Q 3 4, Leonid Lerner bet 185k (all of his blue chips) leaving himself less than 14k behind (all his other chips). Greg Merson tanked for a bit, then made the call. Leonid held K6 for top pair, but Greg had him out-kicked with KJ. The river was a brick and Leonid was busted.

Nicholas Skyllas has also busted out.

Konstantino Dimitroulakos got all-in pre-flop holding pocket Tens and was racing against the AK of Michael Meredith. The board came 9 8 7 2 K and Michael rivered the better pair to take the pot. Konstantino got the boot.

Konstantino Dimitroulakos

42 players remain. Average stack is ~273k.
