Liran Twito called on the button and Andreas Christoforou checked.

The flop came {j-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, Christoforou check-called the 1,000,000 bet of Twito.

The turn was the {q-Hearts}, Christoforou checked again. Twito now bet 4,500,000 and Christoforou called after taking a few seconds.

The river completed the board with the {8-Hearts}, Christoforou checked quickly and Twito tanked. He counted out his stack, took some more time, before stacking all his chips up for the all-in for 11,600,000 in total. Christoforou snap-called.

Twito held {q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} for the turned pair of queens while Christoforou had {j-Spades}{9-Diamonds} for the flopped pair of jacks for Twito to double up and take over the chip lead.
