Kirill Gerasimov Eliminated in 11th Place ($33,172)
Livello 21 : 10,000-20,000, 0 ante
Steve Billirakis raised to 50,000, and Kirill Gerasimov called all in for his last 18,000. Nobody else wanted to tangle, and Gerasimov was fighting heads-up for the 67,000-chip pot.
The flop was a good sweat for both players, and Billirakis grabbed a big lead on the turn. Gerasimov needed to pair his king or the deuce or nine to scoop the pot, but the river was a swing and a miss.
Unable to take even half, that's the end of the road for Gerasimov. He'll leave with $33,172 as a consolation prize.
