Selahaddin Bedir

Selahaddin Bedir raised to 30,000 from the hijack and Seth Davies called in the small blind. Artur Martirosian three-bet to 160,000 from the big blind for only Bedir to come along.

The flop came {5-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{7-Spades}, Martirosian continued with a bet of 75,000 which Bedir called.

The turn was the {k-Hearts} and Martirosian barreled a bet of 210,000 over the line. Bedir took a few seconds and then made the call.

The river completed the board with the {9-Hearts} and Bedir opted to shove when Martirosian checked. A count was asked for and the dealer confirmed that Bedir had 430,000 behind. Martirosian dived into the tank and even grabbed a time bank card but before his time ran out, he made the call.

Bedir tabled the {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for the nut-flush to double up to the chip lead as Martirosian held the {k-Spades}{2-Clubs} for two pair.
