The board read {k-Spades}{6-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{q-Clubs} with around 90,000 in the middle already. Michael Magalashvili bet 55,000 from the cutoff and was called by Christian Thiry on the button.

The river completed the board with the {4-Spades} and Magalashvili counted out his stack and bet 100,000. Thiry tanked for about 4 minutes before the clock was called on him. The floor gave Thiry 30 seconds to take a decision, while the floor counted down from 5, Thiry put in the call. Magalashvili tabled {10-Hearts}{6-Clubs} for the pair of sixes but Thiry scooped the big pot with {k-Clubs}{j-Spades} for the flopped two pair.

Over on the other table, Manish Goenka shoved for 28,000 from mid-position and was called by Karim Alleg in the big blind.

Manish Goenka: {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Karim Alleg: {J-Hearts}{8-Spades}

The board ran out {a-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} for Goenka to double up on the bubble.
