Gruszcznski just suffered at the hands of Liperis once again. He’s now starting to face a real threat of elimination.
Liperis has been putting pressure on with his big stack, and once again he got the upper hand, though he was slightly fortunate, calling with KsTs on the button when Gruszcznski raised from the hijack to 65,000 with pocket kings.
