Basil Yaiche

Basil Yaiche shoved from under the gun and action folded to Liran Twito in the big blind who asked for a count. The dealer confirmed Yaiche had 7,200,000 behind. Twito contemplated his options for a while and then decidedly put in a stack for the call so the cards could go on their backs.

Basil Yaiche: {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Liran Twito: {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

The flop came {4-Spades}{a-Clubs}{8-Hearts} to hand Twito a set of eights immediately.

The turn was the {j-Hearts} for Yaiche to be drawing dead and the {q-Clubs} was dealt on the river as a formality to complete the board.

Yaiche busted in sixth place for $141,440 and now Twito has more than half of the chips in play.
