Robert Cowen raised it up to 900,000 out of the small blind and Veselin Karakitukov used a time bank before calling out of the big blind as the shortest stack at the table.
They headed to the flop on which Cowen eyeballed the stack of his neighbour before betting the pot worth 2,100,000. Karakitukov verified the size of the pot and once the cards were revealed, Karakitukov gasped a "wow" before shaking his head.
Karakitukov was in damned shape and the British rail shouted for an ace, which was instantly delivered on the turn to make the river a formality. Cowen headed to his rail to celebrate before shaking hands with Karakitukov, who was eliminated in 4th place for $458,016.
