Ladouceur Clubbed by Koroknai in Brutal Hand

Marc Ladouceur raised to 480,000 from the cutoff only to have Andras Koroknai three-bet to 1.2 million from the small blind. Ladouceur responded by making it 2.15 million, Koroknai moved all in and Ladouceur made the call.

Both players held the same hand and chances are it would be a chopped pot; in fact, the only way it wouldn't be is if the board was four flushed in either spades or clubs. The crowd seemed disappointed both players had the same holdings, but they perked up when the 10c.gifQc.gif2c.gif flop gave Koroknai a freeroll to a club.

Much to the dismay of Ladouceur's supporters on the rail, the 8c.gif spiked on the turn to give Koroknai the flush and the improbable double. The meaningless Ah.gif was put out on the river and Ladouceur was knocked down to five million.

If you are a poker player, you will understand how unlikely and unfortunate a hand like this is.

That is the very definition of brutal. Going from virtual chop pot, to making a K high flush only to lose to the nuts.

Hope he can recover and make the final table.

I still remember the poor asian guy from a couple of years ago that lost with quad aces. Seriously, the guy had pocket aces plus 2 on the board. He was so pumped when someone else called his all-in and he got to flip his cards over and show the quad aces...only to see the other guy meekly flip over a KJ of diamonds for the royal flush.

I guess if you're going to lose, you may as well lose in style.

The last Canadian is eliminated by another tough hand. Still not a bad payout.

Marc Ladouceur Eliminated in 13th Place ($465,159)

Greg Merson raised to 500,000 from the cutoff and action folded to a short-stacked Marc Ladouceur in the big blind. He moved all in for 4.285 million and Merson made a quick call.

Showdown

Merson: 4h.gif4c.gif

Ladouceur: Ad.gif7h.gif

Ladouceur, who began the day as chip leader, was racing for his tournament life and would need to improve to stay alive. At first it looked as if he would as the 7d.gif appeared in the window, and while it was accompanied by the 7c.gif, the flop also brought the 4s.gif. Ladouceur had flopped trips, but Merson a full house.

The 2c.gif turn meant Ladouceur could win with either the case seven, an ace, or a deuce, but it wasn't in the cards as the dealer burned and put out the 6s.gif on the river. With that, Ladouceur was eliminated from the tournament while Merson chipped up to over 30 million.

I'm very much enjoying the tiny card images.

But chicken kickers like that hit you in the gut.

Ouch, that sucks. Especially when he started the day as chip leader. He even flopped trip 7's and lost on his final hand
