World Series of Poker Main Event -- Andras Koroknai Eliminated In Sixth Place
Koroknai Bluffs Off Massive Stack In Preflop Confrontation With Greg Merson
With a move that some will certainly call a meltdown, Andras Koroknai, the 2012 World Series of Poker main event’s only non-American, was eliminated in sixth place.
Koroknai spent much of the early parts of the final table content to not play any hands. In fact, it took 40 hands before he was able to rake his first pot.
After the elimination of Michael Esposito in seventh place, however, the Hungarian pro picked up his aggression.
In a span of two hours, he was able to increase his stack to over 40 million, placing him in third place overall. His large stack, however, was ultimately his undoing.
Greg Merson raised to 1 million on the button and Jesse Sylvia reraised to 2.6 million from the small blind. Koroknai then reraised to 5.3 million from the big blind and Sylvia folded.
Merson then made it 9.2 million and Koroknai moved all in for just over 40 million. Merson, sitting with approximately 43 million, instantly called, tabling A K.
Koroknai could only reveal a dominated K Q and failed to connect on a board reading 8 3 2 7 7.
Koroknai received $1,640,461 for his sixth-place finish, though he will undoubtedly have a hard time dealing with his elimination hand and all of the chips he let get away.
