Nicolas Levi is up to around 2,000,000 chips after winning a huge and vital flip against Garry Tevosov, who dropped to 90,000 chips in the process.

The Russian raised to 32,000 from the hijack before Levi three-bet to 75,000 from the button. Tevosov didn’t waste much time before announcing a raise to 170,000. That put the pressure right back on Levi and he dealt with it by announcing he was all-in. Tevosov exhaled a large amount of air and said, “Okay, I call.”

Levi: {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}
Tevosov: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}

The board ran {5-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{2-Spades}. Levi looked at his opponent and said, “Stupid game.”
