It all started rather innocent with a cutoff raise to 1.54 million by Stoyan Madanzhiev and Satoshi Isomae then three-bet out of the small blind to 4,483,500, which Madanzhiev called.
They headed to the flop on which Isomae continued for 11,605,800 into a pot of 10,092,000 and was called.
No betting action followed on the turn and Isomae then moved all in for 23,411,295 on the river. Without using his allotted time bank, Madanzhiev called and Isomae tabled for a stone cold bluff.
Madanzhiev had flopped two pair with and earned the huge pot, sending Isomae out in 5th place for $949,937.
