Igor Kurganov has been the shortest stack for the past few levels, but he has fought his way back to become our new chip leader.
Igor Kurganov raised to 100,000 on the button and Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu three-bet to 240,000 in the small blind. The action folded to Kurganov and he decided to see a flop.
Negreanu checked to Kurganov who bet 230,000 and Negreanu made the quick call.
This time Kurganov bet 550,000, when checked too, and the bet was enough to force Negreanu to fold his hand.
