Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Jonathan Durand Eliminated in 22nd Place ($27,442)

[user80015] • Level 23: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Jonathan Durand

Mikhail Lakhitov opened under the gun to 35,000 and was instantly met with an all-in raise from Jonathan Durand next to speak for 279,000. Once the action folded back to Lakhitov, he instantly made the call.

Durand: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}
Lakhitov: {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}

The {J-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} flop gave Durand additional outs to a king or repeat queen, but when the {2-Diamonds} and {4-Hearts} completed the board, he would be forced to exit in 22nd place for a $27,442 payday as Lakhitov soars to 970,000 in chips.
