Hand #258: Roman Korenev limped in from the button and Jared Koppel checked his option. On the flop of {10-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Spades}, Koppel check-folded to a bet of 200,000 from Korenev.

Hand #259: Koppel raised to 500,000 on the button and Korenev three-bet to 1,850,000 which got a fold from Koppel.

Hand #260: Korenev made it 500,000 to go and Koppel stuck in a three-bet to 2,000,000. Korenev four-bet shoved all in and Koppel called off his stack of 9,430,000.

Roman Korenev: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Jared Koppel: {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

The flop of {6-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} left Korenev in the lead with his pocket kings. The {10-Hearts} on the turn gave Koppel the nut-flush draw and the {q-Hearts} gave Koppel the card he needed in order to double up and prolong the heads-up match.
