Lykov Can't Beat Ace-High

The only ever EPT Kiev champion, Max Lykov, has gotten off to a profitable start despite losing a three-way pot towards the end of the second level of the day.

He was one of three players to see a {4-Spades}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs} flop and the action was checked to Sergey Baburin in late position who bet 1,000. Only Lykov called to the {8-Diamonds} turn where he check-called a 2,200 bet. Both players checked the {3-Hearts} river and Baburin opened {a-Spades}{10-Spades} to beat out his fellow Russian Team PokerStars Pro who folded.
