Shigeji Kusakabe

Shigeji Kusakabe shoved from the button for 1,810,000 and Ankit Ahuja snap-called in the small blind for Natalie Teh to quickly get out of their way.

Shigeji Kusakabe: {k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}
Ankit Ahuja: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}

The flop came {q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} for both of them to hit the straight immediately but for Ahuja to have the nuts with the Broadway but a king on the turn or river could mean a split pot.

The turn was the {2-Diamonds} which didn't change things and neither did the {3-Diamonds} on the river as Kusakabe was eliminated in 3rd place for ₱2,809,000 ($54,936).

Ahuja and Teh were sent for a short break before heads-up play would continue.
