Gradinaru Sends Korotkikh Home


With 7,000 already in the pot and three players in the hand the dealer opened {A-Clubs} {J-Spades} {K-Spades} on the flop. Romanian player Gheorghe Gradinaru bet 3,300 and German Martin Finger called. The third player still in the hand was Russia's Mikhail Korotkikh who instantly shoved his entire stack.

Gradinaru snap-called while Finger needed some time to think before laying down his cards. Korotkikh showed {A-Spades} {4-Spades} and Gradinaru had him covered holding {A-Diamonds} {A-Hearts}. The {7-Hearts} on the turn and {3-Diamonds} on the river bricked for the Russian and he hit the rail.
