After doubling up twice earlier, the third all-in confrontation between Oleg Pavlyuchuk and Hanh Tran was the first time Pavlyuchuk was at risk. Pavlyuchuk started the hand with slightly under three million when all the chips flew in on a {Q-Spades}{7-Clubs}{6-Clubs} flop.

Oleg Pavlyuchuk: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Hanh Tran: {9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}

Tran had outflopped Pavlyuchuk and had the lead with two pair. The {5-Diamonds} on the turn brought Tran one card closer to winning his second WSOP bracelet of the year, and he clinched it on the {2-Diamonds} river. Tran cheered and celebrated with his friends on the rail.

Pavlyuchuk's run ended in second place, worth a massive payday of €36,851.
