Gary Styczynski Wins the Biggest Pot of the Tournament

[user22113]
With the board showing {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{J-Spades}{Q-Spades} on the turn, Gumroyan checks, Styczynski bets 120,000, Gumroyan raises to 240,000, and Styczynski calls.

The river card is the {7-Hearts}, Gumroyan bets 120,000, Styczynski raises to 240,000, Gumroyan reraises to 360,000, Styczynski re-reraises to 480,000, and Gumroyan calls with {10-Spades}{2-Spades} for an ace-high straight. Styczynski shows {Q-Hearts}{8-Hearts} to win with the nut flush.

Approximate Chip Counts

[user22113]
Varouzhan Gumroyan - 1.7 million
Gary Styczynski - 1 million

Gumroyan was severely shortstacked early in the last level, but he's come back to take the chip lead.

Varouzhan Gumroyan Wins a Big Pot with Pocket Aces

[user22113]
With the board showing {8-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}, Gumroyan checked, Styczynski bets 120,000, Gumroyan raises to 240,000, and Styczynski calls. The river card is the {10-Diamonds}, Gumroyan bets 120,000, and Styczynski calls. Gumroyan shows {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}, and Styczynski mucks.

The hole card showed only one of Styczynski's cards, the {Q-Clubs}. When he called the last bet, he said, "If you have a five [for a straight], you win." That implies that he had top pair on the flop or river (Q-8 or Q-10), or pocket queens.

Blinds Increase

[user22113]
The blinds increase to 30,000-60,000, with limits of 60,000-120,000.

15-Minute Break

[user22113]
The final two players take a 15-minute break before the blinds increase to 30,000-60,000, with limits of 60,000-120,000.

Updated chip counts probably won't be available until the end of the break.

Styczynski Takes Another

[user22113]
After some preflop raising, the flop comes {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, Styczynski bets 40,000, and Gumroyan folds. The holecams reveal:

Styczynski: {4-Clubs}{4-Hearts}
Gumroyan: {A-Spades}{6-Diamonds}

Varouzhan Gumroyan Comes Back

[user22113]
With betting all the way on a board of {9-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{4-Spades}, Gary Styczynski bet 80,000, and Gumroyan called. They showed:

Styczynski: J-3
Gumroyan: {7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

Gumroyan won the pot with a pair of fives.

Gary Styczynski Takes a Pot With a Full House

Styczynski: {K-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}
Gumroyan: {7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}
