Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Doc Down

David Sands

David "Doc" Sands is our latest casualty after losing a blind-versus-blind battle to 2011 WSOP bracelet winner Oleksii Kovalchuk. Sands opened with a raise from the small blind and Kovalchuk called to see a flop of {J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. That flop hit both players, and the chips went in quickly. After a four-bet shove from Kovalchuk, Sands called off around 9,000 total with {J-Clubs}{8-Spades} for top pair. Kovalchuk wasn't happy when he flipped over the {10-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, but the {10-Spades} shot the Ukrainian pro out in front with trip tens. The meaningless {5-Hearts} landed on the river and Sands bagged up his things before hitting the rail.
