Ole Schemion & Igor Kurganov chat before the final table

Hand #22: Igor Kurganov open shoved for 164,000 under the gun with {Q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}. Under the gun plus two it was Paul Phua who showed interest. Phua had {A-Spades}{K-Spades} and isolated to 364,000. All other players folded and the first all in show down was at hand.

"I am confident my short stack will go on forever" Kurganov laughed.

And well, so far he's right. The {2-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{4-Spades} on the flop didn't help him, but the {Q-Clubs} on the turn did. The river was a blank with an eight and Kurganov doubled up.

He's still the short stack, but he has some breathing room.
