Event 16: Papola & Vizirov Tangle

$700 + $70 + $500 Six-Max Purple Chip Bounty NLH (RE)

Jeff Papola and Leonid Vizirov play a two million chip pot, which is nearly half the chips in play.

After being check-raised on the flop of Q5 A♠, Papola check calls the J♣ on the turn.

The river is the A and Vizirov leads out for 200k. Papola reraises to 627k total and Vizirov goes in the tank. After several minutes, Vizirov calls and Papola turns over the nut flush with K 2.

Vizirov mucks his hand and is cut to 1.5 million, while Papola takes his stack to nearly 2.5 million.

A couple of players stop by media row including Papola's good friend Gionni Demers and most agree that this is Papola's tournament to lose.

Papola has a WSOP bracelet in this format and as one person said, "he runs like God. When you're the best in the world and run that good, you're tough to beat."
