Igor Kurganov Eliminated in 5th Place ($249,160)

• Level 21: 12,000-24,000, 24,000 ante
Igor Kurganov

Action folded around to the blinds and Justin Bonomo raised from the small to put Igor Kurganov, who was in the big blind, to a decision for his approximately 300,000-chip stack. After brief consideration, Kurganov called to put himself at risk.

Justin Bonomo: {Q-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}
Igor Kurganov: {K-Spades}{6-Diamonds}

Kurganov had the preflop advantage and Bonomo needed to improve in order to stack him. The board ran out {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{7-Spades}{6-Clubs}{Q-Spades} to give Bonomo queens up, so he took the pot to end Kurganov's deep run in this event.
