Daniel Idema raised to 40,000 from under the gun and action folded to Bjorn Li in the small blind. Li three-bet and made it 120,000 to go. Mile Krstanoski was in the big blind and four-bet to 405,000. That knocked Idema out of the way and action fell back to Li. He studied his opponent and then announced that he was all in. Krstanoski made the call.
Krstanoski held the best of it when the money went in, but he wasn't a huge favorite as he was flipping with Li. Krstanoski was the player at risk and all in for 1.374 million in chips.
The flop came down and Krstanoski had dodged what he needed to so far. The on the turn left Li needing an ace or a queen to knock out the shorter-stacked Krstanoski.
The river was the and Li let out a big sigh while dropping and splashing all of the chips he was holding in his hand, clearly upset that he didn't win the flip to knock out Krstanoski. Krstanoski doubled up and is now second in chips.
