2019 World Series of Poker Europe

Event #7: €2,200 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed

Kurt From Hero to Re-Entry

zedmaster84 • Level 12: 1,200-2,400, 0 ante

Only a few minutes ago Yusuf Kurt had been the hero, now his stack had been reduced to zero. Kurt had been ahead preflop with {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{2-Clubs}, but Hokyiu Lee flopped top set and turned quads with {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Clubs} to send Kurt to the cashier.

Ronald Keijzer avoided that after doubling through Nihad Kvrgic when they got it in after a {9-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Hearts} flop, the Dutchman doubled for 44,600.

Ronald Keijzer: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Nihad Kvrgic: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}

The {K-Spades} turn gave Keijzer some outs and he got there thanks to the {10-Clubs} river.

"Seven times aces, unbelievable," Kvrgic said in table chat.

Defending champion Lukas Zaskodny was eliminated by Ilya Bulychev at almost the same time and it remains to be seen if the Czech will re-enter until the start of level 13 in order to retain a chance at winning the event two years in a row.
