Rob Yong limped from second to act along with Besim Hot in the hijack and Massimiliano Zanasi on the button. Orpen Kisacikoglu checked his option.

The flop was {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}{j-Hearts} and was checked around to the {10-Diamonds} turn and to the {9-Diamonds} river. Yong, Hot and Zanasi checked again but Kisacikoglu fired 475,000. Yong and Hot snap-folded but Zanasi went deep into the tank, then called. Kisacikoglu tabled {q-Spades}{8-Clubs} for a straight to win the pot, leaving Zanasi with 340,000.

The very next hand, Yong limped from first to act and Zanasi moved all in from the hijack for his last 340,000. Dario Sammartino called on the button and Yong added the remainder to call as well.

The dealer spread a flop of {q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Spades} that was checked through to the {9-Hearts} turn and to the {k-Clubs} river. Sammartino and Yong opted to check again. Sammartino tabled {7-Hearts}{7-Spades} for nines and sevens, Zanasi showed {k-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} for kings and tens but Yong turned over {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} to win the pot with a straight, and eliminate Zanasi in 10th place for €65,947.
