Yevgeniy Timoshenko had been nursing a short stack for quite some time but he couldn’t hold on as we approach the end of Day 1a.
Timoshenko was in the middle of ordering a drink when the action folded around to him in the small blind.
“Actually I’m not that confident I’ll still be here” he told the waiter and cancelled his order, before moving all in for roughly 5,000 in chips.
“I call” announced the big blind.
“You what?” Timoshenko asked with an unimpressed look. “Ah that’s a good hand, I see why you called” he continued after the big blind tabled .
Timoshenko revealed the modest and was in rough shape to keep his tournament alive.
The improved Timoshenko’s opponent to top set and with just backdoor draws to remain in the running he couldn’t find a miracle as the turn and river signalled the end of Timoshenko’s Aussie Millions Main Event.
