Eddie Blumenthal was first to act under the gun and made it 22,000 to anyone who wanted to see a flop. On his direct left was Alexander Nudin, who three-bet to 100,000. The table folded back to Blumenthal who moved all in on his short stacked opponent. A call was made and both players tabled their hole cards.
Blumenthal held a strong lead, and looked to be in great shape to deliver the knock out blow. A flop brought further a further sense of confidence in Blumenthal. A on the turn, and a on the river sealed the deal, and Nudin was sent packing
