Ali Imsirovic min-raised from the button to 40,000, Giuseppe Iadisernia moved all in from the small blind for 220,000, and Vikenty Shegal called from the big blind. Imsirovic folded.

Iadisernia turned over Qh9d, and he needed to improve to stay alive against Shegal’s JdJc.

The board came AcKd7hQs9c, and Iadisernia paired his queen on the turn and his nine on the river to win the pot with two pair and double up in chips.

Giuseppe Iadisernia  –  500,000  (25 bb)
Vikenty Shegal  –  525,000  (26 bb)

With 11 players remaining, the average chip stack is about 925,000 (36 big blinds). They are in the money, guaranteed at least $65,505 each.

Action is scheduled to continue tonight until there are nine players remaining for tomorrow’s final table.
