Vitaly Shafran raised from the hijack, Michael Chiappetta called from the button, and Jonathan Grasso called from the big blind.

The flop fell Ah8s3s and action checked to Shafran who continued for 400,000. Only Chiappetta called to see the 5h turn, which both players checked. The 7s river completed the board and Shafran bet 800,000.

Chiappetta called, but mucked when Shafran showed 5c5d for a set of fives.

Vitaly Shafran – 5,600,000 (70 bb)
Michael Chiappetta – 5,300,000 (66 bb)
