Alexander Orlov

Ryan Galpern raised on the button and Alexander Orlov moved all in for 94,000 out of the small blind. Thiago Costa folded his big blind and Galpern thought for a few moments.

“I’m feeling lucky,” said Galpern, who pushed forward the call.

Galpern showed Qd3d and was behind Orlov’s Ac4d.

The flop was Qs9s6d, which gave Galpern the best hand with a pair of queens. Orlov needed to hit an ace to stay in the tournament, but the Kd on the turn and the Jc on the river eliminated Orlov in third place.

He took home $2,2385 in his second third place finish of the series.
