While Matous Skorepa built his stack on the one table, Jonathan Khalifa just did so on the other to take a big lead over the rest of the field.
On the button, Khalifa raised to 450,000 and Ivaylo Sivinov called in the big blind. Both players checked the flop and Sivinov bet the turn for 450,000, Khalifa called. After the river, Sivinov checked and Khalifa bet one million.
After spending more than two minutes in the think tank, the clock was called on Sivinov and he called with a few seconds left. Khalifa turned over for a flush and scooped a big pot.
