Chance Kornuth min-raised to 80,000 and it folded around to Julian Gardner in the big blind who thought about it for a moment and then made the call.
Gardner checked the flop and Kornuth ominously asked how many chips Gardner had left before betting 85,000. Gardner went all in, Kornuth called, and they turned the cards over.
"All of it!" cried someone at the Kornuth rail.
"You've got me dominated," admitted Gardner.
Turn: leaving Gardner drawing dead.
River: a completely academic
The man who went heads up with Robert Varkonyi in the 2002 Main Event hit the rail. Kornuth was up to 2.31 million.
By the by, Gardner's exit rather cheered up Kevin Boudreau. "Yeah, I just got out of make up!" he called over to his rail.
