Masato Yokosawa raised from the button to 45,000, Kyrylo Kobzyev reraised from the small blind to 165,000, and Igor Tretyakov moved all in from the big blind.

Yokosawa called all in for 995,000, and Kobzyev folded.

Yokosawa turned over KhKc, and needed it to hold to stay alive against Tretyakov’s AhKs.

The board came Qd3d2s10h6s — Tretyakov turned a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. The pocket kings held up for Yokosawa to win the pot and double up in chips.

Masato Yokosawa  –  2,175,000  (109 bb)
Igor Tretyakov  –  651,000  (33 bb)
