      #50: is this coinfliping with 33 normal play at such level? i would understand if he would be agressor or if he had less chips but now i just dont get it.

      I think Hevad Khan made this play because Alex Kravchenko is shortstacked. He assumes that Kravchenko has overcards (which is correct) and that he is in a coinflip situation. He still has chips if he loses the coinflip so he tries to eliminate one opponent and to accumulate more chips. I think that's probably Hevad Khans point of view. Thoughts?

      That's exactly what I think, too.
      Alex Kravchenko could have had a pocket pair nonetheless ... so quite lucky imho.
