Karl Manouchakian took a major hit to his stack via Jeff Trudeau Jr. Unable to recover, he was eliminated a short time later in seventh place. Here’s how the hands went down:
Trudeau raised to 60,000 from early position and Manouchakian defended his big blind.
The flop fell and Manouchakian checked. Trudeau bet 50,000 leaving himself about 250,000 behind. Manouchakian raised, sliding in a pile of blues in the pot that had Trudeau covered. Trudeau called off and it was showdown.
Trudeau: for an overpair
Manouchakian: for king-high and a gutshot
Turn and river:
Trudeau’s pair was best. His stack was counted down to 255,000 and Manouchakian pushed a pile across the table. Manouchakian was left with just over 300,000 and went bust a few moments after when his was ran down by Filipp Khavin’s AIPF.
Filipp Khavin – 1,500,000 (50 bb)
Jeff Trudeau Jr. – 680,000 (22 bb)
Karl Manouchakian – Eliminated in 7th place ($16,683)
