Alexey Makarov raised the pot from the hijack and the action reached Mike Leah in the big blind, who glanced over to his opponent.

"One point two million total," Makarav announced his remaining stack and Leah called to see a flop. The flop came {Q-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and Leah bet the pot, Makarov moved all in and was called instantly.

Alexey Makarov: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Mike Leah: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}

Makarov's top pair had some outs to improve and immediately spiked the {10-Clubs} on the turn. However, the {6-Spades} on the river paired the board to counterfeit his queens and tens, and the Russian was eliminated in 8th place for $87,522.
