With the board showing 9c4c3sQs on the turn and a little more than 40K already in the pot, Dragan Dimishkov checked from middle position, David Farber bet 21,000 from his left, and Dimishkov moved all in for 79,000.

Farber went into the tank for a long time before he called with Jd9h for a pair of nines.

But Dimishkov turned over Qc8c for a pair of queens with a club flush draw, and he needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The river card paired the board with the 4h, and Dimishkov won the pot with two pair, queens and fours, to double up in chips.

Dragan Dimishkov  –  200,000  (133 bb)
David Farber  –  485,000  (323 bb)
