Elior Sion

Thair Kallabat raised to 250,000 from under the gun and Elior Sion defended the big blind, which led them to the {q-Hearts}{j-Spades}{5-Hearts} flop. Sion checked and Kallabat bet the pot, then snap-called the check-shove by Sion for 960,000 total.

Elior Sion: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}{j-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}
Thair Kallabat: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{5-Clubs}

"Wow," Michael Duek and Nitesh Rawtani gasped when they saw the top two and nut flush draw of Sion without even noticing the middle set for Kallabat.

The board completed with the {8-Diamonds} turn and {7-Clubs} river, sending Sion to the rail in 11th place for $76,792.
