Oleg Prokhorov has won the PokerStars Russian Poker Series event in Kiev, Ukraine for $182,482. He overcame a tough field of 322 players, and tough final table that included Team PokerStars Pro Alex Kravchenko.
Kravchenko went in sixth place when he moved all-in from the button with Q♣J♣ and got a call from Anton Ponomarey with K♥K♦. The flop made a set of kings for Ponomarey but also gave Kravchenko a flush draw. No clubs on the turn or river ended his event, although the $29,500 prize money was a consolation.
Ponomarey went on to finish in third in the $2,500 buy-in event, leaving Prokhorov heads-up against Vadim Ostomaty. The final hand saw Ostomaty move in on a 8♣3♣J♥ flop with 8-4, only to be called Prokhorov's pocket nines which went on to make a set on the turn. Ostomaty got $112,800 for his second place.
