Event #15: $3,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Geshkenbein Crowned By Vayo's Kings

[user153638] • Level 23: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

We happened upon the action with 350,000 already in the pot and a board reading {q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. We do know that Vladimir Geshkenbein had check-raised the flop, but other than that the early details eluded us.

What we do know it Geshkenbein led out for 265,000 on the turn and Gordon Vayo announced that he was all in for 516,000. Geshkenbein didn't seem too excited but made the call nonetheless.

Geshkenbein: {q-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
Vayo: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Geshkenbein had flopped top pair with top kicker, but it was no good as Vayo had pocket cowboys. The {8-Clubs} river failed to help the Russian, and he was crippled while Vayo vaulted into the chip lead.
