Rui Cao raised to 375,000 with the {J-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} and Mikita Badziakouski called with the {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. The boar fell {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and both players checked. On the {3-Diamonds} turn, Badziakouski bet 200,000 and Cao called.

The {Q-Spades} river was checked and Cao claimed the pot.

Badziakouski limped the {J-Hearts}{5-Spades} and Cao checked {10-Spades}{8-Hearts}. The {K-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{4-Clubs} flop was checked, and the same applied to the {7-Clubs} turn and {2-Clubs} river.

Cao raised to 375,000 with {Q-Hearts}{2-Clubs} and Badziakouski called with the {8-Spades}{6-Hearts}. Neither player bet the {9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop and Badziakouski checked the {Q-Clubs} turn before calling a bet of 450,000 with third pair. On the {4-Diamonds} river, Badziakouski checked once more and faced a bet of 1 million by Cao.

Badziakouski called to get shown the bad news, while Cao closed the gap to all but one million in chips.
