The stack of Alexandros Kolonias has been reduced to all but five big blinds. Alexandru Papazian limped in and Kolonias then shoved, giving Papazian a decision to make. The Romanian eventually called it off for just under five million chips and now he was at risk for the first time in heads up.
The flop paired the ace for Papazian and he locked up the double on the turn, making the a formality. Papazian doubled for 4.93 million to leave Kolonias extremely short.
