Nicolas Chouity

Nicolas Chouity opened to 200,000 on the button, and Dmitry Gromov three-bet from the small blind to 550,000. Alexander Lakhov was quick to fold his big blind, Chouity made the call in position.

Gromov was first to act on {9-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{5-Spades} and bet out 620,000. Chouity didn't waste too much time calling, and they were of to see a turn: {3-Spades}.

Gromov now checked, and Chouity bet out 950,000. Gromov check-raised all in for just over 3 million, and Chouity snap called.

They didn't open the cards just yet, as the floor rushed to announce that there was an all in and call. Chouity seemed very confident he had the best hand, something made even more clear by the look on Gromov's face.

Gromov turned over {2-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and Chouity said "Weeeeee!" while revealing his {K-Spades}{Q-Spades} for top pair and a flush draw.

Just the {2-Diamonds} could save Gromov from losing most of his chips, that card alone could eliminate Chouity. If any other card would hit, Chouity would have a demanding chip lead and Gromov would be almost out.

Very slowly the dealer burned... and placed the river: {2-Diamonds}!

The one out Gromov had left hit, and Chouity couldn't really believe it. He laughed, clapped in his hands, and said "One outer!" twice to someone on the rail. He didn't even look all that disappointed. "Have you seen this before?" he asked us. "You have never seen this before right?" he continued, "I made history than!"

Nicolas Chouity departs in 3rd place, making $140,000 doing so. The tournament is now heads up between Dmitry Gromov and Alexander Lakhov, with Gromov leading by quite a margin.
