Sigurd Eskelund raises to 125,000, the aggressive Andrey Pateychuk three bets to 285,000 and Eskelund moves all-in for 1,460,000. Pateychuk snaps him off and the two players turn over their cards and we have one almighty flip.
Pateychuk: J J
Eskelund: K Q
The flop propels Eskelund into the lead Q 8 6 and the 8 on the turn keep things the same. Heading to the river and Pateychuk needs to hit one of two jacks to stop himself for being crippled, and would you believe it! The dealer lays down the J right smack into the face of Eskelund and he is out of here! Pateychuk proving once again how critical a run of luck can be in major poker tournaments.
Form is everything and Pateychuk is on a run of form hotter than lava spewing out of a volcano!
