Michael Kurth - 6th Place

Hand #83: Action folded around to Mutke in the small blind, and his 80,000 raise was called by Kurth in the big blind. The flop of {8-Hearts}{5-Spades}{5-Hearts} saw Mutke lead out for 65,000, but Kurth was ready to rumble, reraising to 200,000 even. After a minute long tank, Mutke moved all-in to put Kurth to a test for his tournament life. Kurth liked his {3-Hearts}{4-Hearts} enough to gamble, and he was delighted to see Mutke turn over just {Q-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for no pair no draw. Kurth was looking for hearts, or baby cards to catch up, and the {6-Clubs} added even more outs to his arsenal. He would need any heart, deuce, three, or seven to survive, but the {10-Diamonds} on the river missed him entirely.
