Event #8: €25,500 No-Limit Hold'em Super High Roller

Addamo Running Hot

ajlamers • Level 13: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante

Jean-Noel Thorel raised to 90,000 from early position and Igor Kurganov shipped all in for 665,000 in the small blind. Michael Addamo was int he big blind and thought for a minute before making the call. Thorel stepped aside and the two hands were tabled.

Michael Addamo: {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}
Igor Kurganov: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

Kurganov was well out front with his pocket queens but the flop of {7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} turned the tide in favor of Adams. The {3-Spades} on the turn and the {4-Hearts} on the river sealed the deal for Adams as Kurganov was eliminated. Adams was able to recover most of the chips he previously lost in a pot with Rainer Kempe.
