Mike Watson opened the cutoff to 15,000 only to have Kochelaevskiy move all in for 53,000 from the button. The action passed back to Watson who made the call as the cards were placed on their backs.
With Kochelaevskiy in the lead, the board would see Watson connect on the river to end the Russian's run in 12th place for a $18,407 payday as Watson moves to 525,000 in chips.
A series of preflop raises resulted in a 110,000 chip bet from the small blind from Vladimir Kochelaevskiy and a reraise all in from Salman Behbehani.
Kochelaevskiy tanked on his decision for a few minutes before finally throwing in the chips for the call.
Kochelaevskiy was way behind but still live if he could catch another ten for a set. The flop came down opening up the possibility for a runner straight for Kochelaevskiy. The turn was the materializing some of those outs, but the was not what Kochelaevskiy needed. Behbehani scooped up the huge pot and Kochelaevskiy was left with very few chips.

On the river Kochelaevskiy put out a bet of 33,000 and Vandersmissen went into the tank. He thought for nearly three minutes before finally putting out the chips to make the call. Kochelaevskiy showed for a pair of eights, but Vandersmissen was holding for a better pair of jacks. Those jacks were good enough to scoop Vandersmissen the pot.
Jan Kropacek opened to 12,000 from the button, and as Nacho Barbero was delivered his lunch for the day - All American Dave's Mango Jalapeno Ahi Tuna - he three-bet the small blind to 28,000.
Kropacek would release and Barbero would start to chomp down on his lunch as "Redbull" Robbie Thompson sneaked over and had a look.
On the next hand Kropacek would open to 12,000 again - this time from the cutoff - and again Barbero would three-bet as he made it 29,000 from the button.
Kropacek folded and Thompson stated, "must be the tuna!"
"Giving me energy!" added Barbero before continuing, "or cards!"
