Sergei Nikiforov

Three-handed play was driven primarily by the all-ins of Oscar Carrasco and that led to the elimination of Sergei Nikiforov. Nikiforov got it in with a chance to chip up a sizable amount but is out in third place instead.

Carrasco moved all-in for 4,000,000 on the button with 33♠ and Nikiforov called in the small blind with AK♣. The A♠109♣ flop gave Nikiforov the lead and the 7♣ turn kept him ahead. All was looking good until the 3♣ river gave Carrasco a set to win the pot.

Carrasco comes into heads up play with 7,000,000 to the 12,580,000 of Eric Wasylenko.
