Poker can truly be a cruel game, and Kevin Pollak knows that more than anybody right now. Kirill Rabtsov raised to 52,000 under the gun, and Omar Saeed called from the button. Kevin Pollak moved all in from the big blind for his last 369,000 and Rabtsov quickly moved all in over the top. Saeed folded, and the cards were tabled.
Most of the crowd got a chuckle when they saw the hands, as it looked destined for a chopped pot. However, the flop came down . Rabtsov was now frerolling, as he would win the pot with two more hearts. The hit the turn, and the crown started to groan. Pollak put his hands on his head, and was hardly able to look at the river.
The whole mothership let out a disgusted sigh, and Pollak was left in shock. After a few moments, he let out a laugh, and said "it's so absurd you have to laugh."
With that, Pollak is sent to the rail, and he left to a nice round of applause. After that hand, Rabtsov is up to 1.651 million.
