Dmitry Gromov Freefalls, Eliminated in 12th place ($14,388)

• Level 20: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante
Dmitry Gromov

Earlier we reported on Dmitry Gromov getting his aces cracked and not being happy about it. But now he is very upset, after losing the rest of his chips in three straight hands. First, we came to the table as the board read {j-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. Gromov had just check raised Shawn Keller, and Keller came back by putting in a third bet. Gromov called, and also called when Keller bet the {7-Clubs} on the river. Keller showed {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts} for a turned set, and Gromov angrily showed {q-}{q-}.

On the next hand, Gromov raised and Matt Sterling, the shorter stack, three bet. Gromov called, and Sterling got the rest of his chips in after the flop {2-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{k-Clubs}.

Gromov: {q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Sterling: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}

The turn and river came {3-Spades} and {3-Hearts}, and Sterling doubled up to cripple Gromov even further. On the next hand, he got the last of his chips in preflop against Mitch Schock, and Gromov was in a dominating position.

Gromov: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Schock: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

Gromov stood up and in a joking/angry manner asked the dealer for a queen and, well, he got what he asked for. The flop came {2-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}, and Gromov continued to curse at the dealer in Russian. The turn and river came {8-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}, and Gromov stormed off, yelling more Russian bad sounding words as he left.
