Susan Choi

Aleksandr Shevlyakov started the action with a raise to 1,800 and called a three-bet from Susan Choi for 3,800.

Things heated up on the flop {j-Spades}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts}. Shevlyakov first checked and Choi bet 10,000. Shevlyakov thought about his move for a minute and raised it to 55,000, putting Choi to a decision. The latter took some time and announced all in, which was immediately called by Shevlyakov, who had her covered.

"You have a set?" asked Choi, revealing the {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds} only to see Shevlyakov's hand of {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for a flopped straight.

The rest of the board fell the {6-Clubs} turn and {6-Spades} river and Choi was eliminated from the tournament not long before the end of the day. Meanwhile, Shevlyakov now has a massive stack worth 400,000.

"So sick," said Choi right before leaving the tournament's area.
