Anatoly Gurtovoy and Elton Tsang shake hands

Hand #273: It's all over and it took a cooler to end it. Anatoly Gurtovoy opened to 3,200,000 and Elton Tsang made the call. The {Q-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{4-Clubs} flop was checked through and the {2-Hearts} fell on the turn. Tsang checked, Gurtovoy bet 3,000,000 and Tsang wanted a look at Gurtovoy's stack. It looked to be about 14,000,000 in total and Tsang said. "I make it nine," and he raised it up to 9,000,000. Gurtovoy paused a few beats then moved all-in and Tsang snap called. The chip leader showed {6-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and Gurtovoy looked exasperated as he turned over {A-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for an inferior straight.

There was still the possibility of a chop but the river was the {J-Clubs} and Tsang improved to a flush to make sure of the victory. A large round of applause rang around the room for the Big One for One Drop champion.
