Alex Kravchenko eliminated from the WSOP in 4th
The final four players remaining at the World Series of Poker main event final table played for more then eight hours before one of them finally busted out. Alex Kravchenko was nothing if not patient, he got his chips in with a monster, big slick, and found himself up against, you'll never guess who, this years final table force, Jerry Yang.
To rub it in, fate layed down a third eight for Yang on the flop. The turn was no help, and left Kravchenko drawing dead at the river.
Alex won nearly 2 million dollars for his efforts, taking home a prize of $1,852,721.
Chip Counts after Kravchenko's departure:
Jerry Yang - 67,300,000
Raymond Rahme - 36,100,000
Tuan Lam - 24,075,000
