With a dead small blind, Josh Arieh was first to act, and he raised to 27,000. Alex Bolotin reraised to 85,000 out of the big blind, Arieh flicked out a call, and the dealer fanned {q-Spades}{10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. Bolotin led out for 90,000, Arieh raised to 235,000, and Bolotin moved all in for 855,000. Arieh snap-called.

Bolotin: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}
Arieh: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

The two-time WSOP bracelet winner held a commanding lead with a set of tens, but the {a-Spades} spiked onto the felt on the turn, giving Bolotin a higher set.

The {j-Clubs} bricked off on the river, and the Brooklyn native shipped a massive double to nearly 1.9 million chips. Arieh slipped down to around 850,000.
