The flop came {2-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and Thomas checked. Badziakouski continued for 1,000,000 and Thomas peeled his gutshot. He was instantly rewarded with the {j-Spades} making his straight. He checked to his opponent who bet 3,700,000. Thomas called.

The river was the {k-Diamonds}. Thomas checked and Badziakouski tanked for ninety seconds before betting 9,000,000. Thomas called and took down the pot with his straight, overtaking Badziakouski in the chip counts in the process.
