Maxim Panyak opened to 8,000 from the hijack and action folded around to Bhavin Khatri, who defended his big blind. The flop came and Khatri checked to Panyak, who made a continuation-bet of 10,500. Khatri called.
Both players checked the turn and river to take the hand to showdown, and Khatri tabled for aces up. Panyak was unable to beat it and sent his cards to the muck, resulting in the small pot going to Khatri, who now finds himself with just shy of a quarter-million after enjoying what has appeared to be a good last hour-plus of play for him.
