In the last hand of Level 30, with blinds at 75K-125K, Hiroaki Harada raised to 300,000, and Michael Tureniec called.

Both players checked to the turn on a board of 9d8d6sQc, Tureniec checked, Harada bet 700,000, and Tureniec called.

The river card paired the board with the 8h, and both players checked. Tureniec showed Qd7c to win the pot with two pair, queens and eights, and Harada mucked.

Michael Tureniec  –  9,300,000  (62 bb)
Hiroaki Harada  –  7,100,000  (47 bb)

Level 30 came to an end, and Level 31 began with increased blinds of 75,000-150,000 and a 150,000 ante. (The big blinds in their stacks were calculated at the new level.)
