Ben Yu raised to 275,000 from the button and Nikita Kuznetsov looked at his cards before announcing he was all-in for the 3,010,000 he had in front of him. Yu snap-called.

Nikita Kuznetsov: {2-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Ben Yu: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}

Kuznetsov flew over to his rail when he saw the cards and they all shouted for a deuce.

The flop came {3-Hearts}{a-Spades}{q-Hearts} to keep Yu ahead.

"Four" the Russian rail shouted and the turn was the {4-Diamonds} for Kuznetsov to pick up the gutshot to a wheel.

However, the river completed the board with the {8-Diamonds} for Yu to fist pump several times, even jump up and down a bit while celebrating and giggling at the same time.

Yu walked over to Kuznetsov and shook his hand as the latter grabbed his stuff and made his way to the payout desk to collect $445,892 for his runner-up finish.
