Pavel Veksler: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}
Alexey Romanov: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}

The flop of {2-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{K-Diamonds} gave Veksler the lead and prompted Forman to announce to his friends that he folded pocket nines. The turn of {4-Diamonds} and river of {6-Hearts} kept Veksler ahead and gave him a priceless double up.
