Mikita Badziakouski maneuvers the biggest stack in the tournament room and there was no doubt he'd put it to a good use on the bubble.
Badziakouski raised the button to 55,000 and Stephen Chidwick matched the price from the small blind.
The flop came and Chidwick let Badziakouski continue for 125,000. He called.
The turn saw Chidwick check again and Badziakouski kept firing. He slid forward 350,000 but Chidwick wasn't ready to give up just yet. He paid up again.
So they went to the river with over 1 million in the pot. Chidwick checked for the final time and Badziakouski used a time extension before making his move. He announced he was all-in, putting Chidwick to a test for his remaining 1,300,000 or so.
Chidwick didn't need as much time, he briefly scanned his chip-stack and then released his cards, folding.
