Pierre Neuville was down to just 28,000, not even two big blinds. The Belgian grandmaster shoved from early position, and action was folded to Martin Finger on the button.
The German moved in for 245,000, only to be met by a snap-call from Amirov in the big blind.
"Ach!," exclaimed Neuville, who finally found a monster, only to run into a bigger monster. The flop practically sealed it, giving Amirov a near mortal lock of 96% on the hand. The turn left everyone drawing dead, the river was just nice for the statistics.
"Ajee!," gasped Neuville upon seeing the river card, before making his way to the exit in 16th. Finger finished 15th, bringing us three places from the bubble.
