We just caught the end of a huge hand in which Anatoly Filatov chipped up very nicely against Rocco Palumbo.

The board showed {J-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{6-Hearts} and Palumbo bet 45,000 into a pot of 44,000, and Filatov proceeded to move all in for his tournament life.

Palumbo held {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for a flush and he had the winning hand, but Filatov's move with {A-Spades}{2-Spades} was too strong for the Italian. Palumbo folded and Filatov gained huge traction in this match up.
