Kornuth Chops Down Stout

[user249920] • Level 16: 2,500-5,000, 0 ante
Matt Stout ran into a monster.

Chance Kornuth raised to 11,000 in the cutoff, and Matt Stout reraised to 38,500 on the button. Kornuth repotted after the blinds folded, making it 123,000 total. Stout called, wishing Kornuth good luck as the dealer spread the flop: {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}{8-Clubs}. Kornuth immediately shoved all in for his last 88,000.

"Brutal," Stout muttered. After a bit he announced a call.

Stout: {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}{j-Clubs}{9-Spades}
Kornuth: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}

Kornuth had top set, while Stout had backdoor draws and a gutter. The turn brought a {q-Hearts}, harmless to Kornuth but he shot Stout's hand a quick double-take to make sure his opponent hadn't made a straight. A {5-Hearts} river was a blank, and Stout lost the majority of his stack to his neighbor.
