Event #5: €1,100 MONSTER STACK No-Limit Hold'em

Ivanov Almost Hits a Straight Flush

poolshir • Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

Aleksei Ivanov and Manish Goenka were all-in and heads-up and Ivanov was at risk with the shorter stack of 222,000.

Aleksei Ivanov: {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Manish Goenka: {A-Clubs}{q-Spades}

The flop came {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for Ivanov to hit a straight draw.

The turn was the {j-Hearts} to give Ivanov the straight indeed but he could also improve to the straight flush or normal flush. Goenka was looking for the king to give him the broadway but the {9-Clubs} on the river kept Ivanov ahead to double up.

Goenka was left behind with less than 8 big blinds which he lost shortly after.
