$5,000 Ante Up For Africa Poker Tournament

Alex Filatov Eliminated in 3rd Place ($56,516)


It's shove poker now. Phil Gordon moved all in from the small blind and was called by the shorter-stacked Alex Filatov. Filatov's {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs} was in frnot of Gordon's {j-Spades}{8-Spades}. Each player missed the {9-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop and the {4-Spades} turn. It looked like a Filatov double-up was on order until the {j-Diamonds} hit the river to give Gordon a pair of jacks. Filatov is out in 3rd place.
