David Laka raised to 10 million with the {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} on the button and Aleksandr Gofman called from the small blind. Aleksandr Merzhvinskiy raised all in for 139 million out of the big blind and Laka folded, Gofman called rather quickly.

Aleksandr Merzhvinskiy: {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}
David Laka: {5-Spades}{5-Hearts}

The board came {K-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} and the pair of fives held up for Gofman to eliminate Merzvhinskiy in third place for 464,000 Casino Sochi Units (~$400,000).

Both remaining players agreed to take a 15-minute break after before heads-up action gets underway.
