Ryan Hughes opened to 100,000 from the hijack seat and it was folded around to Vladimir Mefodichev on the button, who three-bet to 250,000. Both blinds folded and action was back on Hughes, who went all in for about 700,000. Mefodichev snap-called and Hughes was at risk.
The flop left Hughes with two pair and the lead, however, the turn gave Mefodichev broadway. The river bricked for Hughes and he was eliminated in 9th place.
Mefodichev is up to 3.1 million.
