Action folded to Vinny Monteiro on the button, he raised to 1,100,000 and the blinds called. The flop came 9s5d2d, Hossein Pezeshkan checked in the small blind, Corel Theuma checked from the big, and Monteiro continued for 1,500,000.

Pezeshka check-raised all in for 10,675,000 to get a fold from Theuma. Monteiro thought for a few minutes and called to put Pezeshka at risk.

Pezeshkan: Qd9d
Monteiro: 4d3d

Monteiro flopped an open-ended straight flush draw but Pezeshkan was ahead with the paired nine with a bigger flush draw. The Ks turn and 5c river finished the board to give Pezeshkan a huge double.

Hossein Pezeshkan – 24,150,000 (48 bb)
Vinny Monteiro – 5,250,000 (11 bb)
