Action folded around to Daniel Dvoress on the button and he popped it up to 16,000. Chip leader Mikita Badziakouski was the player in the big blind and with chips to spare he made the call to take play heads-up to the flop.
Badziakouski thought about betting, looked like betting and then… checked. Dvoress checked it back and the turn came down . Badziakouski checked once more and Dvoress decided to take a stab for 15,000.
Badziakouski counted out chips for a raise but thought better of it and threw in the call and the hit the river.
This brought another check from Badziakouski and Dvoress pushed out a bet of 24,000, which was quickly called. Dvoress turned over for the rivered backdoor diamond flush and Badziakouski let out a deep sigh before throwing his hand away.
Louis Salter busted before the break, as did Juicy Li and while we missed their exit hands neither player chose to re-enter.
