No Trouble in This Double for Gurtovoy

Anatoly Gurtovoy

Anatoly Gurtovoy couldn't bear to watch as the board was rolled out by the dealer. He was all-in for his last 434,000 and it great shape, but it was all still to much for him.

The pot opened with a raise to 60,000 from Lucille Cailly and a three-bet from Alex Mostafavi in the small blind. Gurtovoy was in the big blind and four-bet shoved. Cailly quickly folded and Mostafavi called just as quick.

Mostafavi: {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}
Gurtovoy: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

The board ran {10-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{q-Spades}.

Gurtovoy's friend on the rail told him on the turn that it was safe to look. Mostafavi tapped the table and paid his dues.
