Laurynas Levinskas opened for 400,000 under the gun and Alexandr Merzhvinskii defended big blind. Merzhvinskii checked the {q-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} flop and Levinskas bet 300,000. Merzhvinskii craned to get a look at Levinskas' remaining stack then announced all in, earning a quick fold.

The next hand, Paul Michaelis raised on the button to 425,000 and Levinskas defended. Action checked through on the flop for a {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{8-Hearts} board. Levinskas checked again and Michaelis put in 400,000. Levinskas shoved for about 1.8 million and the German was in there with a snap-call.

Paul Michaelis: {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Laurynas Levinskas: {k-Spades}{9-Spades}

Levinskas' top pair was stone dead against the turned set and he sighed and wished everyone good luck.

After the hand, the prospect of a deal was again brought up but it was shut down in a hurry when Michaelis and Merzhvinskii argued whether short stacks benefited or didn't from ICM.
