After a flop of AcQd9c, Michael Tureniec checked, Hiroaki Harada bet 300,000, and Tureniec called.

The turn card was the 5c, Tureniec checked, Harada bet 1,100,000, and Tureniec called.

The river card was the 7h, Tureniec checked, Harada bet 1,900,000, and Tureniec tanked for a long time before he called.

Harada showed 9h5h to win the pot with two pair, nines and fives, and Tureniec mucked.

Hiroaki Harada  –  11,350,000  (91 bb)
Michael Tureniec  –  5,175,000  (41 bb)

A few minutes later, they four-bet it all in preflop, but both turned over AxQx offsuit. Neither player made a flush, and it was a chopped pot.

Here are the remaining payouts at stake:

1st:  $100,700 + RRPO Trophy
2nd:  $58,663
