Leonid Yanovski bet 200,00 from the button with {q-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and was called by Fabian Brandes in the big blind with {k-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts}.

On a flop of {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}{3-Clubs}, Yanovski bet 150,000 and Brandes called.

The {5-Hearts} on the turn gave both players two pair. Yanovski bet 600,000 and the German residing in Austria made the call.

The {9-Spades} river prompted both players to check and Brandes kings and fives pipped Yanovski's queens and fives to put Brandes within 100,000 chips of the chip leader.
