Alex Foxen and Ioannis Angelou-Konstas

Alex Foxen raised to 22,000,000 from the button with {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and was called by Ioannis Angelou-Konstas holding {q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}.

The flop came {k-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for Angelou-Konstas to have a straight draw and Foxen to be ahead still with the pocket eights. Angelou-Konstas check-called the 13,000,000 bet of Foxen.

The turn was the {3-Hearts} to not change the situation and Angelou-Konstas checked once more. Foxen looked at the board and Angelou-Konstas, Foxen also checked.

The {10-Spades} came on the river to give Angelou-Konstas the nut straight and now Angelou-Konstas checked for the last time. Foxen looked at his own stack and riffled his chips, Foxen decided to bet 46,000,000.

Angelou-Konstas tanked while staring at the board, he then decided to shove to put Foxen at risk. Now it was Foxen's turn to consider his options, he huffed, tilted his head a few times, sat back, used a time bank card while Angelou-Konstas kept his head down and stared at the board, and then made the call. Angelou-Konstas quickly flipped over his cards. They both got up to shake hands as the tournament was now over as Angelou-Konstas scooped the pot.

A full recap of today's action is to follow.
