Harry O’Brien

Sheddy Siddiqui folded his button and Harry O’Brien moved all in from the small blind for 2,025,000. Dmitrii Perfilev called with a chance to get the tournament heads-up.

O’Brien: AhTs
Perfilev: Ac6c

O’Brien was dominant but the Kc9s2c meant he needed to dodge clubs the rest of the way. The 4d turn was safe and he doubled after the 9d river.

Harry O’Brien – 4,100,000 (17 bb)
Dmitrii Perfilev – 9,650,000 (40 bb)

Dmitrii Perfilev

Sheddy Siddiqui opened to 480,000 from the button and Dmitrii Perfilev defended in the big blind to a Kd6s4s flop. Perfilev checked, Siddiqui bet 400,000 and Perfilev called.

The turn came 4c, Perfilev checked again, Siddiqui bet another 900,000 and Perfilev called. One last check from Perfilev after the Js river and Siddiqui slid out a healthy 2,400,000 bet. After a couple minutes, Perfilev called the big bet and his Kh3h was good enough to take the pot against Siddiqui’s Qh8c for the lead.

Dmitrii Perfilev – 10,500,000 (43 bb)
Sheddy Siddiqui – 7,400,000 (30 bb)

Cesar Solares

Sheddy Siddiqui opened to 450,000 from under the gun and picked up calls from Cesar Solares on the button and Dmitrii Perfilev in the big blind. Perfilev and Solares checked the As8h5h flop and Solares announced: “all in”. Perfilev quickly folded and Siddiqui called just as quickly.

Siddiqui: Ah8s
Solares: Jh9h

Siddiqui was ahead with aces up but needed to fade the hearts to send Solares out. The 6d turn gave Solares gutshot outs but the river blanked Qs to give Siddiqui the pot while Solares was eliminated in fourth place.

Sheddy Siddiqui – 9,300,000 (47 bb)
Cesar Solares – Eliminated in 4th Place ($75,441)
