Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Kostritsyn Crushed

Alexander Kostritsyn Eliminated

On the last hand before the break, Bryn Kenney raised to 160,000 from under the gun before Alexander Kostritsyn three-bet to 575,000 on the button. The blinds folded and Kenney moved all in with Kostritsyn quickly calling.

Kenney: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}
Kostritsyn: {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}

The flop brought a real sweat as it fell {J-Hearts}{7-Spades}{3-Hearts} to give Kenney a flush draw to go with his ace as outs to end the run of the Russian young gun. It didn't arrive with the {3-Diamonds} turn but there were "oooooohs" around the rail at the {5-Hearts} landed to complete Kenney's flush.

After a count down of chips Kenney had more and a stunned Kostritsyn departed the Amazon Room silently amongst the sea of players heading to break.

Meanwhile Kenney will be enjoying his break as he will return with 7.7 million chips.
