Eric Froehlich Advances to Final Four

We missed the preflop betting but with the blinds at 10,000/20,000, Eric Froehlich and Nikolay Evdakov stared at a board reading {6-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}. The pot contained between 450,000 and 500,000 chips and Froehlich tapped the table, checking the action to Evdakov.

The Russian announced himself all-in for 226,000 and the man known to the poker world as "E-Fro" called, showing his {Q-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for two pair, while Evdakov flinched and flipped his {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} for top pair top kicker. Evdakov needed to spike an Ace or a Ten to overcome Froehlich, but the river card came {6-Hearts}, giving Froehlich a full house and a ticket to the Final Four.
