Alfred Karlsson began heads-up play with a big lead but Karthik Ramakrishnan quickly erased it before taking the lead.

On the first hand of the new level, Ramakrishnan was all in for 3,345,000 and Karlsson called with a chance to end the match early.

Ramakrishnan: KsQd
Karlsson: JsTs

Ramakrishnan was ahead for the double as each hit the KhJd9s flop. The 2s turn was safe for Ramakrishnan and he had a double after the 9h river.

Soon after, they saw a 7d6d2h with Ramakrishnan on the button. Karlsson checked, Ramakrishnan bet 300,000 and Karlsson check-raised to 900,000. Ramakrishnan called and Karlsson continued for 1,500,000 after the 9d turn.

The river came Qh and Karlsson announced: “all in”. Ramakrishnan quickly called for 3,890,000 and tabled his nut flush AdTd. Karlsson showed flopped two pair 7h2s before sending the lead across the table.

Karthik Ramakrishnan – 13,150,000 (66 bb)
