Froehlich slid out eight 25,000 chips, three-betting to 370,000.
After counting and recounting his chips, the Russian quietly said "All-In" and Froehlich snap-called, saying "seven" as he showed his . Evdakov winced as he saw the bad news, flipped over his and hoped for a miracle. The on the turn provided some sweat, giving Evdakov two outs to win the hand and the match. The on the turn missed him, however, and Evdakov shipped 696,000 chips to Froehlich while cashing in his first 400,000 add-on.
