Khoroshenin Crushes McKeehen

• Nível 5: 250-500, 75 ante

Oleksii Khoroshenin has taken the chip lead in the $25,000 High Roller tournament after calling a river bet against former WSOP Main Event winner Joe McKeehen.

The board was showing {2-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{2-Spades}{3-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and McKeehen had bet 20,000 into a pot of 35,000. Khoroshenin went into the tank, but after being stared down for around five minutes, made the right call. McKeehen showed {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}, but the ace kicker to the two pair on board for Khoroshenin's {A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} was good enough to bump up the big stack he already had.
