Yevgeniy Timoshenko opened the action with a raise to 170,000 from the button. Erik Seidel reraised to 440,000 from the small bind, and then Mike McDonald made the call. Timoshenko then moved all in for around 1.4 million, and Seidel called before McDonald folded. Flop 'em up, boys.

Seidel tabled the {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} to be up against the {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for Timoshenko.

On the flop, Seidel took the lead when the {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{2-Clubs} fell to give him two pair. The turn, though, smashed Timoshenko with the {10-Spades} peeling off to put him back in the lead with trips. The river completed the board with the {8-Diamonds}.

Timoshenko doubled to over 3.2 million, while Seidel was knocked all the way back down to 300,000.
