Yi Ye opened to 260,000 first to act and Giorgiy Skhulukhiya called on the button. Natalia Panchenko jammed the big blind for 1,600,000 and Ye reluctantly folded. Skhulukhiya asked for a count and made the call.
There were some groans on the rail when Skhulukhiya took the lead on the flop, but Panchenko was all smiles when the turn locked up her double. A meaningless followed on the river and Panchenko was right back in contention.
