If there was any doubt over the chipleader for the final day, it has just vanished after Giorgiy Skhulukhiya won a massive pot against Yi Ye.
It started with a raise to 180,000 by Ye in the under-the-gun position and Skhulukhiya called from one seat over, as did Natalia Panchenko out of the big blind. The flop came and the action checked to Skhulukhiya, who bet 230,000. Panchenko got out of the way and Ye quickly called.
After the turn, Ye check-called a bet of 535,000 after some consideration and checked again the on the river. Skhulukhiya ow cut out a hefty bet of 1,765,000 and that sent Ye into a tank of more than four minutes. Nobody called the clock and a sigh-call of Ye followed to see Skhulukhiya turn over for top set to establish an overwhelming ead.
