Darryll Fish

The action is back-and-forth between the two finalists, and so far, the stacks aren’t moving much. Most of the pots are small, and showdowns are few and far between.

Even the small pots represent the potential for significant swings, though, with less than 60 total big blinds on the table.

In a recent hand. Fish opened the button with a raise to 1,100,000, and Aleksandr Shevelev defended his big blind. Shevelev check-called a bet of 900,000 after a Tc9h4c flop, and they both checked through the 6s turn. The river was the Qc, and Shevelev check-folded to a bet of 1,600,000.

Fish won the pot, and the two continue to hover around even in chips.

Darryll Fish – 13,200,000 (26 bb)
Aleksandr Shevelev – 14,125,000 (28 bb)
