Big Three-Way Action Preflop Sends Kongsgaard Home

[user68268]
Tyler Kenney, Soren Kongsgaard and Alessandro Speranza (far right)

From middle position, Tyler Kenney raised to 725 to kick off the action on this hand. Soren Kongsgaard flatted from the cutoff seat and then play fell on Alessandro Speranza on the button. He three-bet to 2,475. The two blinds folded before Kenney four-bet to 6,175.

Kongsgaard tanked for a bit and then five-bet shoved for 18,850. Speranza didn't do anything right away. He took a little bit, double checked his hole cards and then eventually announced that he was all in. Kenney had about 20,000 behind and Speranza had him covered. Kenney gave it up though and let Speranza do battle with Kongsgaard on this one.

Kongsgaard: {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}
Speranza: {K-Diamonds}{K-Spades}

The flop came down {K-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and upon seeing it, Kongsgaard immediately stood from his chair and began turning around. That's when the {5-Spades} landed on the turn and left him drawing dead. By the time the {2-Spades} landed on the river, Kongsgaard was about 30 feet away from the table headed to the door. Speranza moved to about 60,000 in chips.
