Dori Yacoub

Anton Morgenstern raised to 350,000 from the cutoff and was called by Dori Yacoub in the big blind.

The flop came {6-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}, Yacoub check-called the 350,000 continuation-bet of Morgenstern.

The turn was the {9-Hearts}, Yacoub checked again and Morgenstern shoved with the bigger stack. Yacoub tanked for a while, counted out his stack which was worth around 1,800,000, and then put a stack for the call.

Dori Yacoub: {j-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Anton Morgenstern: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

They had both flopped a pair but Morgenstern was ahead with the higher pair of kings so Yacoub already got up from his chair.

The {2-Hearts} completed the board on the river to seal the deal for Morgenstern and Yacoub would be the first player to benefit from the payjump. Yacoub collected $41,565 for finishing in 12th place.
