Gurevich Playing To The Max

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship

Kenneth Smaron is knocked out in 43rd place for $9,653.

Max Gurevich (Staten Island, NY) was as high as 800,000 and as low as 250,000.

In felting Kenneth Smaron he almost doubled up - close to $500,000.

Gurevich held 8-7 of clubs and saw a flop of Q-2-6, all clubs.

Both players checked the flop.

Smaron shoved on the turn card 4 and Max snap called.

River 10 didn't matter as Kenneth was drawing dead.

"I didn't know he was that strong...It's good to run good when you're playing bad" said Max.
