Lutz Crippled as Bubble Nears
Two of the 74 remaining players are going to walk away with empty pockets, and after a recent hand, it looks like Thomas Lutz might be one of them. Lutz and Oleksii Khoroshenin get in a raising war preflop that sees all of Khoroshenin's chips get in the middle.
Khoroshenin is in great shape for a double up, and the flop all but ends things, coming down . Lutz needs runner runner now, and though he does catch the on the turn, the river is of no use to him. After that pot, Lutz is down to his last 2,500, while Khoroshenin soars to 125,000.
