Arkadiy Pervyy Bakhtin

Arkadiy Pervyy Bakhtin was buoyed by his ladder up the payout and went into aggressive mode. Several shoves made it through without calls until he made one for 3,550,000 after Hector Pacheco opened to 500,000 on the button.

“OK, let’s go!” Pacheco said.

Bakhtin: Ac2c
Pacheco: Qd9d

Bakhtin was ahead but needed to dodge Pacheco’s two live, suited cards. The flop came Js7h2h to improve Bakhtin to a pair of deuces, the turn 7s gave him sevens up, but Pacheco hit the Qh river to make a bigger two pair to send Bakhtin out in third place.
