Table 5 is getting tougher and tougher. Jason Mercier, Chris Moorman and Yevgeniy Timoshenko have just been joined by Erik Seidel and JC Tran. You would imagine that the rest of the players making up the mix would be in awe of their competition. This may be so, but it has not stopped one young Russian from tearing a hole in nearly all of their stacks. Kirill Kruglov has zero WSOP cashes to his name, but that means nothing right now as he is sat holding 51,000 chips.
Kruglov must have had a hot streak of hands to pick up that many chips, amongst that type of company, and the following hand shows. We picked up the action on a board containing more hearts than a tank full of Octopus - - and Moorman was paying off Kruglov on the river. Moorman held and Kruglov held for the nut flush. That hand has left Moorman with 6,000 chips.
