Badr Imeggane raised UTG+1 to 100,000, Anthony Zinno reraised from the cutoff to 450,000, and Denys Shafikov moved all in from the small blind for 3,350,000.

Imeggane used one of his Time Chips to tank for nearly a minute before he folded, and Zinno quickly called all in for 780,000 with AcQs.

Shafikov turned over KhKc, and Zinno needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Qc4c2dAhJc, and Zinno paired his ace on the turn to win the pot and double up in chips.

Anthony Zinno  –  1,760,000  (35 bb)
Denys Shafikov  –  2,565,000  (51 bb)
