There was a big hand brewing between two of the largest stacks on table 3 as the pot had at least 800,000 in it on the turn as the board read {3-Hearts}{6-Spades}{q-Clubs}{8-Spades}. Fausto Tanillo bet 275,000 from under the gun and was called by Jenya Gavrilovich in the big blind.

The river was the {6-Clubs}. Tantillo jammed all in to put a massive decision in the hands of Gavrilovich who sat back and immediately put forward all of his time banks, indicating that a long tank was to come.

He stood up, just as he had done late in Day 2 and peered over the table to assess the situation. He played with chips in his hands. Eventually he called.

Tantillo tabled the {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades} for top pair which out-kicked Gavrilovich who had the {q-Hearts}{7-Hearts} and just like that he was gone in 16th place.
