Alex Dovzhenko raises to 32,000 with 9 9 in first position and when the action folds around to Steve O'Dwyer in the big blind he moves all-in and Dovzhenko calls. O'Dwyer turns over A K and we have a coin flip situation on our hands with Dovzhenko at risk of elimination. If O'Dwyer loses he will be extremely short.
So off we go to the flop with 1 million chips and O'Dwyer hits the flop K 4 3. The turn is the K and Dovzhenko needs a nine to stay alive. The river is the 6 and Dovzhenko has been eliminated as O'Dwyer moves up to 1 million in chips.
