Runaway chip leader Sotirios Koutoupas now has more than 4,000,000 after winning a pot against Dimitri Holdeew, who is down to around 500,000 as a result.

The pot started like many others with a raise from the button (Koutoupas) and a call from the big blind (Holdeew). On the {Q-Spades}{3-Hearts}{6-Hearts} Koutoupas continuation bet 58,000 and Holdeww made the call. The {4-Diamonds} turn was checked through and the {Q-Hearts} completed the board. First to act Holdeew led for 100,000 and Koutoupas raised it up to 365,000 total. "Where are you from again?" asked Holdeew to Koutoupas. I couldn't hear the Greek's response but whatever it was Holdeew decided to muck.
