Timofey Kuznetsov opened under the gun to 3,500 and Byron Kaverman slowly and deliberately made the call right behind him.
The rest of the table got out of the way and the two went heads-up to a flop. Kuznetsov continued for 3,500 and Kaverman flatted. Kuznetsov checked the turn, but called when Kaverman took the lead, betting 4,500.
Kuznetsov checked again when the river was revealed, and Kaverman bet 11,000. Kuznetsov called and mucked when Kaverman turned over the .
Raking in the pot gave Kaverman a spot among the early leaders and sent Kuznetsov below starting for the first time today.
