Event 8: Igor Skochko – 4th Place ($3,078)

$350 8-Handed Big Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 23: Blinds 8,000/16,000/2,000 ante

There was some talk about a possible four-handed deal after the last break but talks broke down when Igor Skochko asked for more than his ICM number. The other players did not agree and nothing went well for Skochko from that point forward.

He dropped a few 5k stacks along the way before getting them in with AdQd and Blain Ovind quickly called.

“Uh oh, do you have Aces?” Skochko asked.

It wasn’t Aces but he was in trouble when Ovind tabled QhQc. The dealer kept the board clean 7h3s3c9sKc to give Ovind a nice pot and send Skochko out in 4th place for $3,078.
