Level 33: 100,000/200,000 with a 25,000 ante
Players Remaining: 2 of 911

Aleksandr Shevelev opened the button to 400,000, and Darryll Fish defended his big blind.

The flop was KcKs6s. Fish checked, Shevelev continued for 225,000, and Fish called.

The turn was the 2s. Fish checked again, Shevelev bet 800,000, and Fish called.

The river was the Jc. Fish checked again, and Shevelev bet 2,100,000. Fish used a Time chip, then called.

Shevelev showed Kd5d, winning the pot with three kings.

That pot appears to have moved him into a small lead, though the two men are very close in chips.

Andy Frankenberger moved all in for 2,305,000 on the button, and Darryll Fish called to put him at risk from the small blind.

Frankenberger: 7d7h
Fish: AcJc

The 8d4c4h flop was clean for Frankenberger, but the Jd turn gave Fish a huge lead with one to come.

“I’ll take a seven on the river,” Frankenberger tried.

The 3s was the last card off, though, and Fish won the pot with jacks up.

Frankenberger was eliminated in third place.

Fish and Aleksander Shevelev are now heads-up for the trophy.
