O'Dwyer Busts from Unlucky Seat
Alex Kulev opened to 100,000 and action folded around to short-stacked Steve O'Dwyer, who tank-min-raised to 150,000 and left himself with 50,000 behind. When it got back to Kulev, he moved all in and O'Dwyer called.
"Good luck," Kulev said as with his previous all-ins.
"Thank you," O'Dwyer replied with a smile, despite some chatter about it being an unlucky seat. "I'm still here, ain't I?"
O'Dwyer was a favorite going in with his superior kicker and things were looking good when the flop came . The on the turn brought chop-outs for Kulev, but then the on the river was a knife in the gut as it gave Kulev two pair.
Kulev was pushed the pot as O'Dwyer made his exit, two places off of the money. The remaining members of the table then concurred that it was, in fact, an unlucky seat.
