The Proverbial Two Birds


We've got a few details on the eliminations of Marcel Bjerkmann and Morten Erlandsen. They happend on the same hand, and the pot began with Dmitry Nemirovsky opening to 7,200 in early position, and Bjerkmann shoved all in for around 50,000 a couple seats over. Mortan Erlandsen reraiased all in himself, and Leonid Bilokur re-reshoved behind them both. That shook Nemirovsky out of the way, and Bilokur was looking for the double knockout as the cards were tabled.

Bjerkmann: {J-Diamonds} {J-Hearts}
Erlandsen: {A-Spades} {K-Diamonds}
Bilokur: {Q-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts}

The {5-Diamonds} {5-Hearts} {K-Clubs} flop was just what Erlandsen was looking for, jumping out to a big lead with two to come.

Turn: {Q-Clubs}!

That's the money card for Bilokur, improving him to queens full and leaving Bjerkmann drawing dead. Erlandsen could still find a two-out king to stay alive, but the river {2-Hearts} was a blank.

The double KO goes to Bilokur, and he's up to about 250,000 thanks to that.
