Alekberovas Back-to-Back Final Tables in Jeaopardy

[user153638] • Nivel 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Anaras Alekberovas, who finished fourth in this event last year and is looking to make back-to-back final tables, made it 100,000 to go under the gun only to have Emilio Jimenez three-bet all in for 710,000 from the small blind. The big folded and Alekberovas gingerly dropped in a call.

Alekberovas: {K-Spades}{J-Diamonds}
Jimenez: {10-Spades}{8-Spades}

Jimenez reached over and shook hands with Alekberovas as if to say, "Nice call." Indeed it was, but Jimenez was drawing to two live cards. Much to the delight of his supporters on the rail, he found one when the flop came down {7-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{3-Spades}. Alekberovas sat motionless and watched helplessly as neither the {3-Hearts} turn nor {9-Spades} river provided him paint.
