Defending Champion Skorepa Busts in Last Hand

zedmaster84 • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 8,000 ante

Matous Skorepa was reduced to all but 5,000 and in the small blind after losing an all in with {J-Spades}{9-Spades} against Darren Lalli, who held the {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}. The board came {Q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and Lalli doubled.

One hand remained at their table and Skorepa was checking the screens for a possible pay jump, which indeed showed between 91st and 90th place. Ramez Haddad raised to 29,000 in the cutoff and Ivaylo Sivinov called on the button. Skorepa reluctantly called it off and the flop came {J-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}. Haddad bet 25,000 and Sivinov called to see the {10-Hearts} on the turn.

Haddad bet 50,000 and Sivinov moved all in for 188,000, Haddad gave it some thought and called.

Matous Skorepa: {Q-Spades}{6-Hearts}
Ivaylo Sivinov: {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}
Ramez Haddad: {K-Clubs}{J-Hearts}

The {A-Clubs} river was a mere formality and Skorepa was eliminated. However, he made the pay jump as Sinisa Bodrozic and Zoran Ilicic busted right before that on different tables.
