Hand #67: Dmitry Yurasov open-shoved 1,140,000 on the button with {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}, a little over 13 big blinds.

"All in? Wow!", exclaimed Mats Karlsson in the big blind, who then looked at his holecards to find {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}.

"I call," said Karlsson after twenty seconds of thought, putting Yurasov in a great spot to double up to a playable stack.

The {4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop kept Yurasov in the lead, but the {Q-Diamonds} on the turn dramatically changed everything. Yurasov needed to find an ace or a diamond on the river or his dreams of winning EPT Malta would be over.

"One time," begged Yurasov.

It wasn't meant to be when the {6-Clubs} landed on the river, sealing it for Karlsson.

Yurasov's fantastic run in this tournament ended in third place, and the Russian high roller collected the third six-figure score of his career by winning €192,650.
