A Broken Aronov

Samuel Aronov

From the cutoff seat, Samuel Aronov opened the pot with a raise to 40,000. That folded the table to John Chong's big blind, and Chong quickly stacked out a reraise to 136,000 and slid it across the felt. Aronov didn't waste too much time moving all in for a bit over 300,000, and Chong quickly called to put his man at risk.

Aronov: {K-Diamonds} {J-Hearts}
Chong: {A-Clubs} {10-Hearts}

The flop was dry and the turn was a disaster, and the board of {5-Clubs} {8-Hearts} {9-Clubs} {A-Diamonds} {2-Spades} left Aronov drawing dead by fourth street and resigned to his 12th-place finish. He'll pocket 178,200 HKD for his work over the past three days.
