Kurganov Doubles Twice to Take the Lead

AnTh0nyWTF • Nível 9: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Igor Kurganov was the last player to take a seat in this event and in the span of about 10 minutes, has taken the chip lead.

In the most recent hand, Kurganov and Jason Koon got into a preflop raise-war that ended with Koon all-in and at risk.

Koon: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Kurganov: {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

A {5-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} board fanned out and after a quick count to verify stacks, Kurganov had Koon slightly covered and sent the American to the rail.

According to the table chatter, moments before the hand Kurganov doubled up with pocket kings.

Kurganov gave his tablemates a little needle poking fun at the fact most of them had been grinding for five hours and have nowhere near the stack the Russian now wields.
