Aleksandr Shevelev moved all in for 8,325,000 on the button, and Darryll Fish called to put him at risk.

Shevelev: Ac4h
Fish: 4c4d

The rails for both players pressed in against the set as the flop came 8h3s2c — pretty safe for Fish. The 3h on the turn didn’t change anything. Shevelev needed to river an ace or a five to stay alive, and he did just that. The 5h completed the board, giving Shevlev a wheel and a double-up.

Fish was one card from a WPT title, but he’ll have to sit back down and try to mount a comeback once again.

Aleksandr Shevelev – 16,800,000 (28 bb)
Darryll Fish – 10,525,000 (18 bb)
