Lidiya Kozenkova had been playing extremely tight in the last few hours and nursed a short stack. She opened first to act, making it 525,000 to go and was called by Natalia Panchenko on the button and Giorgiy Skhulukhiya in the big blind.
After the flop, acton checked to Kozenkova and she continued for 825,000. Only Panchenko called and the followed on the turn.
Kozenkova stared at the board behind her shades and moved all-in after to minutes of consideration, which sent Panchenko into the tank. She counted her remaining stack and eventually called.
A blank followed on the river and that sent Kozenkova to the rail in 4th place for RUB6,202,000. In table chat, Panchenko mentioned in Russian to her rail that she had been worried about ace-king.
