Busquet Crippled in Last Hand of the Level

• Nível 18: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #64: Action folded to Igor Kurganov in the small blind and he raised to 150,000, which Ole Schemion called from the big. The {3-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{10-Diamonds} flop missed both players, and it went check-check. The {3-Spades} turn saw the action repeat itself, and then the {4-Spades} completed the board on the river. Both players checked for a third time and Kurganov won another pot.

Hand #65: Richard Yong opened for 105,000 from early position holding the {a-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}, and Rono Lo, who woke up with the {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} in the hijack, popped it to 330,000. Action folded back to Yong and he released his hand.

Hand #66: Ole Schemion raised to 125,000 from the button only to have Paul Phua shoved all in from the small blind with {a-}{6-}. The big folded and Schemion did the same.

Hand #67: Dan Cates limped from the small blind with the {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and Richard Yong checked his option with the {5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}. Both players then checked it down as the board ran out {5-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and Yong won the pot.

Hand #68: In the last hand of the level, Ole Schemion raised to 110,000 from the hijack with the {k-Clubs}{j-Spades}. Paul Phua was next to act in the cutoff, and he three-bet to 210,000 with the {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}. Olivier Busquet then moved all in for 930,000 with the {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds} in the big blind, Schemion folded, and Phua called off for 810,00 total.

The {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}{j-Hearts} flop was no help to Busquet, and neither was the {3-Diamonds} turn. He needed a ten on the river, but it wasn't in the cards as the {7-Spades} blanked. Phua got a double, while Busquet was crippled and will be coming back to a two big blind stack.
