Ankit Ahuja raised to 1,800,000 from the button and was called by Mehdi Hsissen in the small blind.
Both players checked the 4♥ 6♦ 3♠ flop before the 9♥ dropped on the turn.
Hsissen checked. Ahuja bet 2,200,000. Hsissen immediately raised to 5,200,000. Ahuja moved all in. Hsissen called with a total of 11,900,000 behind.
Ahuja: 9♣ 5♣
Hsissen: J♦ 9♦
Hsissen had the lead with a higher kicker after both players turned top pair.
The 7♣ spiked on the river, improving Ahuja to a straight, which was enough to send Hsissen to the rail in 4th place.
