Aleksey Filatov

Aleksey Filatov dropped to a short stack after playing a big bet hand against Leonard August that did not go to a showdown and they tangled again. Filatov raised from the small blind, August put in a third bet from the big, and Filatov called at risk for 67,000 total.

Filatov: AhAc6d5h
August: Kh7h3c2s

Filatov was ahead with his aces but August flopped two pair kings and threes on the KdQs3h to take the lead. Filatov added a low draw on the 4d turn but the Kc river bricked to send him out in third place.

Leonard August – 615,000 (12 bb)
