Selahaddin Bedir raised to 1,300,000 on the button and action folded to Vadzim Godzdanker in the big blind who announced he was all in for Bedir's last 14,800,000 chips. The call was made and cards were on their backs.

Selahaddin Bedir: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Vadzim Godzdanker: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}

It was a cooler, as Godzdanker had Bedir in rough shape. The flop {a-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{2-Hearts} gave them both top pair, but Bedir needed any queen to take the lead.

The {8-Clubs} turn card was even better for Godzdanker as it took away running chop outs for Bedir.

The river was the {3-Spades}, completing the board and eliminating the Turkish pro and arguably tournament favorite.

Godzdanker now has 72% of the chips in play as they move into heads-up play.
