No-Limit Hold'em

Dan Cates limped in with the {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds} and Yuri Dzivielevski checked his option with the {q-Hearts}{2-Hearts}. The {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{10-Hearts} flop was checked by Dzivielevski and Cates then bet 300,000, his opponent check-raised to 900,000 and Cates called.

Dzivielevski bet the {5-Diamonds} turn for 2,000,000 with his flush draw and Cates called as they headed to the {k-Clubs} on the river.

Dzivielevski emptied the clip and moved all-in for an effective 4,950,000 to get called by Cates, who doubled and went within 100,000 chips of the lead.
