After the three-way all-in point of high drama came an expectedly active period for the recently-ascended chip leader. Blind on blind, Matsuzuki limped in but snap-folded when Aris Moschonas set him in.
This set the scene for the next hand, as Matsuzuki raised on the button to 3,600,000 and Moschonas promptly set him in again. Big blind Bansal, however, was the caller for 4,780,000, while Matsuzuki let go of his hand.
The rail called for different cards preflop depending on which side you were standing; once the came on the flop, a lot of Greek interspersed with, "Hold!" and, "Pair the board!" poured forth in a torrent of support for Moschonas. The turn and river sealed Bansal's fate, and action is now heads up for the WSOP bracelet and $194,759 top prize.
