Aliaksandr Shylko limped in from the cutoff with {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} and Philipe Pizzari raised to 900,000 from the small blind with {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. Nacho Barbero called in the big blind with {a-Clubs}{6-Spades} and Shylko also called.

The action flop landed {a-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs} to give Pizzari top pair, Barbero aces up and Shylko an open-ended straight draw. Pizzari bet 1,200,000. Barbero raised to 3,800,000 and Shylko got out of the way. Pizzari called.

Incredibly, the {10-Clubs} landed on the turn to improve Pizzari to two pair and to set the stage for carnage.

"Someone call the doctor, someone is going to be in the poker hospital after this," Maria Ho commented from the booth.

Barbero moved all in and Pizzari quickly called with a stack of 8,550,000.

Philipe Pizzari: {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Nacho Barbero: {a-Clubs}{6-Spades}

The {j-Spades} bricked off on the river and Pizzari took the chip lead as Barbero became the short stack.
