Amit Makhija Eliminates Vasili Firsau

Michael Dietrich raised to 26,000 from under the gun, Ben Vinson three-bet to 64,000 in the next seat, Amit Makhila four-bet jammed for 196,000 in the hijack seat and Vasili Firsau also moved all-in from the cutoff. The action folded around to Vinson and he asked for a count of Makhija's stack as it was the bigger of the two. After a short while Vinson folded and left Makhija and Firsau to their own devices.

Makhija{A-Spades} {K-Hearts}
Firsau{Q-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts}

The flop {J-Diamonds} {5-Spades} {2-Spades} changed nothing, but the {K-Diamonds} on the turn certainly did. Makhija took the lead and when the {9-Spades} hit the river his double up was complete. Firsau left the party in 29th place.
