Aleksandr Shevelev opened the button to 600,000, and Darryll Fish three-bet to 1,500,000 in the big blind. Shevelev called.

The flop was Ts3c2s. Fish continued for 950,000, and Shevelev called.

The turn was the 6d, and Fish bet another 1,400,000. Shevelev used a Time chip, then moved all in for 5,225,000. Fish quickly called to put Shevelev at risk, but the Russian was on the good end of this battle of big pairs.

Shevelev: KdKh
Fish: QdQh

Fish could win the title with a two-out queen on the river, but he could not find one. The 6h completed the board safely cool for Shevelev, and he doubled up with kings full.

Aleksandr Shevelev  –  15,450,000 (52 bb)
Darryll Fish – 11,875,000 (40 bb)
