Kurganov Almost All In

Igor Kurganov raised to 19,500 preflop, leaving a single purple T500 chips behind, and Maria Ho made the call. Both players then exposed their cards, and per Crown rules, Kurganov wasn't allowed to put in his other 500 chips.

Showdown

Ho{A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}
Kurganov{7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

It was a flip, and while the {2-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} flop didn't hit Ho directly, it gave her some added outs to a straight. Lucky for Kurganov, the {3-Spades} turn and {8-Spades} river missed Ho and he nearly doubled.
