Vladimir Troyanovski's great start to this tournament has gotten even better after he made a big call to bust Christophe Benzimra.

The two had accumulated a pot of around 38,000 by the river of a {8-Hearts}{4-Spades}{k-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{q-Clubs} board. Benzimra shoved for 35,000 to put all the pressure on his Russian opponent who, after tanking for five minutes, made the call.

Benzimra announced that he had ace-high. Troyanovski opened {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds} and scooped the pot to move way clear at the top of the counts.

Benzimra ordered a new stack and is the first to re-buy.
