The turn was 4 and Neumen check-called 806,000. The came 8, Neumann checked, Dilling moved all in after a stare and Newmann called holding A 4 for two pair and Dilling just had a a pair of kings.

Despite the deal the trio played for several hours without an elimination. Neumann’s hefty chip lead disappeared after two key hands against Khoroshenin. The first saw Neumann hold K 7 on a K 8 7 4 7 board. But Khoroshenin had pocket eights and had a larger full house and earned a full double up.
The very next hand Neumann got all in after a 9 8 7 flop holding 9 8. But Khoroshenin had the best of it again holding J T for a flopped straight. The board bricked out and Neumann was eliminated in a quick and shocking fashion.
Khoroshenin held a four-to-one chiplead for heads-up play. The final hand saw both players see a flop of 7 5 4 before all the money went in the middle. Khoroshenin tabled K 3 and Ghamarawil was ahead holding 7 6 with a pair. The turn came T, filling Khoroshenin’s flush and earning him the trophy.
