$1,150 TKPT Main Event Final Day 6/84
Level 19: 3,000-6,000 / Ante 1,000
The last hand of the level saw a raise to 13,000 by Pierre Goetz and a call by Albert Balayn in the cutoff. Viktor Karkus called in the small blind before Mohan Karran three-bet to 58,000 in the big blind. Goetz four-bet to 143,000 and Balayn as well as Karkus quickly folded.
“How much more is it?” Karran asked. After thinking it through for two minutes, Karran folded with the words “You have ace queen? I didn’t want to flip for it.”
The players then headed into their first 15-minute break of the day.
