Kim Makes a Stand and Goes Bust

Assembled media quickly came scurrying from the feature table area to Table 3, where James Kim was all in at risk of elimination against Alex Tikholiz. Kim's middle pair, {K-Spades} {5-Spades}, was drawing against Tikholiz's small overpair, {8-Diamonds} {8-Spades}, on a board of {4-Clubs} {5-Clubs} {7-Diamonds}. Kim never improved, {A-Clubs} turn and {7-Hearts} river.

"Domoi!" shouted Tikholiz, pounding the table with each syllable. That's Russian for "Go home!" Kim, we imagine, doesn't speak Russian and therefore had no reply for Tikholiz. Either way, he's busto.
