Yakovenko Busts Martin


No-Limit Hold'em

Action folded to Nikolai Yakovenko in the small blind and he raised to 7,500. Jesse Martin three-bet to 21,500 from the big blind, Yakovenko called, and the flop came down {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

Yakovenko bet about 103,000, covering Martin's stack. Martin spent a good two minutes in the tank and was visibly frustrated by the decision he was faced with. He ultimately called with {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}, but found himself trailing Yakovenko's {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}.

The {3-Hearts} turn and {3-Diamonds} river were no help to Martin, ending his tournament.
