Dejan Boskovic opened the cutoff to 12,000 and Ang Italiano called on the button before Kasra Bakhshaee moved all in from the small blind for 51,000. Boskovic folded, but Italiano made the call to put Bakhshaee at risk.
With Bakhshaee trailing and needing to connect to stay alive, the flop would see him flop top pair to now be at a huge advantage.
The turn however opened the door slightly as it fell the to give Italiano outs to a straight.
Unfortunately for Bakhshaee, the dealer would burn and turn the on the river to end his tournament on the bubble while simultaneously sending Italiano up to 535,000 while ensuring the remaining 36 players a guaranteed AU$20,003 payday.
