Chop it Up Twice
$1,150 TKPT Main Event Day 2 11/84
Level 17: 2,000-4,000 / Ante 500
Mario Eder looked up the shove of table neighbor and short stack Viktor Karkus with the 8c8h and Karkus had 8d8s. The board came 10s10h9hJsQd and there was no miracle four-card flush.
Soon after, Albert Balayn shoved from the small blind and Michael Lech called. Balayn had the AhQd and Lech showed 3c3d. The flop came 5c4c3s and Balayn was on the way out. After the 7s turn, Lech called for a six to have a split pot, and sure enough the 6s river secured exactly that.
Play will continue for another three levels or until the final table of the last nine has been determined, whichever of the two comes first.
