Philipp Gruissem - 2nd Place

From the button, Igor Kurganov raised to 32,000. After Philipp Gruissem three-bet from the big blind to 82,000, Kurganov called to take a flop in position.

The dealer fanned out the {K-Spades}{10-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}, and Gruissem led with a bet of 70,000. Kurganov made the call to see the {10-Diamonds} pair the board on the turn. Gruissem checked, and Kurganov checked behind.

The river completed the board with the {3-Hearts}, and Gruissem announced that he was all in with his stack of 235,000. Kurganov snap-called.

Gruissem showed the {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} for two pair, kings and tens. Kurganov had him beat with the {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades} for trip tens and won the pot. Winning that pot eliminated Gruissem in second place and netted Kurganov the victory for AU$275,000. For his finish, Gruissem earned AU$187,000.
