Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Demidov Cuts Himself in Half

• Nivel 1: 50-100, 0 ante

We missed the initial raises, walking up preflop as a player reraised to 4,500 (probably a four-bet, possibly a five-bet). Ivan Demidov reraised right back to 8,800, and his opponent shoved in for 16,900. Demidov probably knew his {Q-Diamonds} {Q-Clubs} was in trouble by now, but he called the extra amount to put his man at risk. Sure enough, the {K-Diamonds} {K-Clubs} appeared on his side of the felt.

The board ran out {2-Spades} {4-Diamonds} {7-Spades} {6-Hearts} {2-Hearts}, and Demidov was forced to ship the double, parting with more than half his stack. He's got about 14,000 left.
