Petr Jaros - out

Petr Jaros opened to 22,000 from the button, and Vojtech Ruzicka shoved in from the big blind. Jaros only had about 200,000 chips left, and he spent a few minutes toying with the decision. Since they're both Czechs, Jaros asked the dealer if he could speak to his opponent in their native language.

The dealer allowed the exchange, and Jaros quickly asked, "Hey, dude, what do you have?" in Czech.

That drew chuckles from everyone around who understood, but Ruzicka knew better than to divulge the contents of his hand. After another little while, Jaros conceded that he could not play with less than 20bb at that table, and he called of the rest of his chips to put his tournament life in jeopardy.

Jaros: {K-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds}
Ruzicka: {4-Spades} {4-Diamonds}

Race! Jaros seemed to like his chances, but the dealer had other ideas. The board ended up reading {2-Hearts} {9-Hearts} {3-Clubs} {A-Spades} {4-Hearts}, and Jaros has been sent to the rail.
