Aleksandr Merzhinskii

Aleksandr Merzhinskii limped from under the gun, Brian Yoon bumped it up to 825,000 in the hijack and Merzhinskii raised to 5,000,000. Yoon instantly moved all in and Merzhinskii called just as quickly, players turned over their hands with Merzhinskii at risk.

Merzhinskii: {k-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Yoon: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

The dealer fanned out {6-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts} on the flop and Merzhinskii was still in need of a king to stay alive. An {8-Clubs} on the turn and {3-Clubs} on the river did not improve Merzhinskii as he was eliminated to the flush of Yoon in sixth place.
