Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Off to the Races for Tikhonov's Tournament Life

[user153638]

Sergey Tikhonov moved all in preflop for his last 135,000 and was called by Fernando Brito.

Showdown
Tikhonov: {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}
Brito: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

Tikhonov was at risk and essentially flipping for his life. He was looking for some help, and the {J-Spades}{Q-Spades}{J-Clubs} flop delivered just that. Suddenly Tikhonov was out in the lead with trips and looking to dodge either a ten or running straight cards. The {5-Hearts} changed nothing, and neither did the {6-Diamonds} river.

Tikhonov doubled to 320,000 on the hand while Brito was left with just 97,000.
