Bonkowski Bounces Melikian

Shamus • Level 24: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante

Another preflop all-in confrontation to report between a below-average stack and a big one. In this case, Ara Melikian had the short stack, committing his last 388,000 with {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}. And Tyler Bonkowski had the larger stack, looking to knock out Melikian with {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}.

The flop came {2-Spades}{10-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}, giving Bonkowski a set of queens. The {9-Spades} on the turn provided a ray of hope for Melikian, but the {K-Spades} fell on the river, sending him out just shy of the top 100.

Bonkowski now has about 3.6 million.
