Konstantin Puchkov opened to 85,000 under the gun. Nuno Capucho called from the cutoff, and Olli Autiö defended his big blind. All three players checked the {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop.

On the {3-Hearts} turn, Autiö led out 140,000, getting only Puchkov to call. The river {8-Clubs} prompted a 260,000 from Autiö, and Puchkov folded {K-}{K-} heads-up. The Fin silently raked in the pot.

Andrea Cortellazzi

Vojtech Ruzicka made it 90,000 from under the gun. In the next seat, Andrea Cortellazzi called and so too did Pavel Plesuv in the big blind. The flop of {K-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{6-Clubs} saw Ruzicka continue for 180,000 and that was only called by Cortellazzi.

The turn of {9-Hearts} saw Ruzicka make it 365,000, again Cortellazzi called it off. On the river of {A-Clubs} , Ruzicka made it a massive 435,000. Cortellazzi took his time but eventually called and was shown {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for trips on the turn for Ruzicka, the November Niner.

Cortellazzi turned over {6-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and that was enough to see him rocket his stack to 4.13m. Vojtech Ruzicka is down to just over a million.
