Ilya Krupin Eliminated in 43rd Place By Joseph Cheong

Feb 29, 2016

Joseph Cheong raises to 14,000 from the hijack and Ilya Krupin calls from the cutoff. They are heads-up to a flop of Diamond JSpade 10Heart 7 and Cheong checks. Krupin bets 22,000 and Cheong calls.

The turn is the Heart A and Cheong checks again. Krupin bets 45,000 and Cheong takes a moment before putting in a check-raise to about 170,000, more than enough to put Krupin all in. Krupin commits the rest of his chips and the cards are tabled.

Cheong tables Heart KSpade Q, giving him the nut straight and Krupin shows Diamond AClub J, good for top two pair. Krupin needs to find an ace or jack on the river, but the Diamond 4 peels off on the end and eliminates Krupin in 43rd place. Krupin takes home $25,630 for his finish.

Joseph Cheong – 405,000 (67 bb)
Ilya Krupin – Eliminated
