Gurtovoy Takes on Buddiga

Anatoly Gurtovoy raised to 20,000 on the button and Pratyush Buddiga three-bet to 53,000 in the small blind. Ziv Caspi suddenly found an interest in the hand from the big blind and both players stared at him intently until he decided to fold. Almost immediately, Buddiga's eyes preyed on Gurtovoy and the Russian made the call.

Flop: {J-Clubs} {3-Spades} {2-Diamonds}

Buddiga bet 47,000 and Gurtovoy raised to 74,000. Some of the players motioned to the dealer that the raise size was incorrect and Gurtovoy was asked to make it 94,000. Gurtovoy did as he was told, but it was irrelevant, as Buddiga mucked his hand.
